Hanging around

Ok so maybe this is not to everybody’s taste but for the cute n fluffy crowd, this fits %50 of that criteria!  I took a series of these caterpillars yesterday happily munching their way through our tiny veg plot.  I’m keeping an eye on them and will hopefully catch all stages of their lives in the next couple of weeks.  Style wise this is my standard issue for macro shots, narrow aperture, flash on 1/4 power and background nice and far away for a nice dark background (a very common way of shooting underwater macro at the moment)

  1. I love it. I try to photograph caterpillars whenever I can find them. This shot does so much more than document the caterpillar–it has a real artistry to it.
