Thanks MJ. I never knew there was such a large variety of caterpillars until I started taking pics of them. :)

Thanks Gary. Often they are so hairy it is difficult to get a picture of their faces but I try to do so if possible. :)

Troy

Interesting view on that closeup.

Thanks Troy. As you probably know by now, I like to get these things from different angles if I can, it makes it a bit more interesting. :)

I assume you are still using the Kodak. However these are really good Joan and I have to say that you have come a long way from where you were several months ago when you began in macro. A very marked improvement indeed, you should be very proud of your accomplishments. Not being picky, just some constructive comments, it appears that the depth of field could have been just a bit better but that is hard to do sometimes, even with a DSLR and macro lens stopped down, however I too have the same problem with my point and shoot PowerShot G7, the auto focus does not always see the subject like I do, no matter how far down one may stop the lens sometimes.

Yes, the compositions are quite nice as are the colors and details, very sharp on those spines and good details in the little "feets." The DOF I was refering to is mainly in the second image around the mouth, eyes, and more of those little feet but not to worry, all together a very nice set of images. :D

Ken
Thanks for the kind comments, it is much appreciated. :) I agree with your comments on the second pic, the face is not as clear as I would like it to be. I think the problem lies in the fact that it is cropped from the full pic with shows better DOF than this, although the clarity is still an issue on the face. :)

Thanks Chris. I am not sure if it is a butterfly or moth. I have been having a great problem trying to get the id on these caterpillars and it has been suggested by a few people that I actually begin to breed them out and take pics, then do a book. An interesting suggestion. :D

I searched all 236 digital pages, count em,' of buguide.net and found quite a number of similar species, all moths. Yeah some were close but close really applies only to "horse shoes and nuclear weapons" and with horse shoes one really has to get close. However I would say that this might one day become a moth. It has all the characteristic markings, of which, that suggest a moth caterpillar. :D

Posts like this can make ya lose sleep... :lol:
