A week between the pictures...seems like these caterpillars grow fast!

Any idea what they are?

Thanks Rik!
I noticed huge numbers of them, each about 20mm long.
I think it is a larva of Athalia rosae (Coleseed sawfly). :D
(Bingo?) :wink:

Yep, shallow DOF on last shot, very close to tiny (16 - 18mm) subject and only f/2.8 ( f/4.5 on first and f/5.6 on second).

Could well be, or something very much like them. Too many prolegs to be a moth or butterfly. Interesting critters!

Think I found adult Athalia rosae within my archives. I'll post it soon.
Yep, here it is.

I like the second one, the insides of the flowers are poping right out with sharp focus :wink:
