The colors are so beautiful and the detail is so very impressive!
Way cool, I have to make one of these!
Great photo, you have been linked.
Yes! Thank you! I found one of these on my wall and, after looking for hours online, still couldn't find the name. You're wonderful.
Not often you see macro shots with such composition. Amazing stuff.
Wow! The colours! ^^
wow that's a cool looking caterpillar!
Indeed. The butterflies have returned from wherever they go during the summer and they are performing mating dances in our back yard. Soon they will lay eggs, so there will be more caterpillars next spring.
Thank you! The butterflies are back, laying their eggs. So Spring will bring more of these caterpillars in our yard.
ravenous little guys, but I like them al the same ^^ nice shot. They are wonderful at trickery too, those protrusions are just for display not dangerous at all to the touch. He looks awfully shiny...did you polish him before his photo shoot? Looks very healthy XD
Thank you for the information on their trickery! Yea, I was surprised at how it looked almost wet.
wow, really great shot xxx
Gorgeous! Such a colorful little thing. Do you know if it's poisonous? It certainly looks it lol
Thank you! I thought for sure they would at least be bitter or something, but they were actually pretty tasty. Well... not to me LOL, there is no way I would eat one of those, but despite the warning colors and the toxic look of these caterpillars, some birds seemed to like them. Life is harsh for a caterpillar.
love the colors, love the composition, hate the bug. wouldn't wanna run into that thing anywhere
wonderful picture ! colors are amaising !
Thank you. Yes they very colorful. We had a lot of them on some bushes in the back yard, at least until the birds found then /cry. They all had bright orange and white, but the blue varied from caterpillar to caterpillar from light grey to the blue you see in the picture.
thats cool looking
blue and orange have finally leaked into nature. The world will be a better place now.
