Amazon Pics Part 23

Post by Moebius »

Couldn't decide which pic to show of this caterpillar (~4cm), so will show you three. Anyone have a preference?

He/she had me totally fooled. It was only when I noticed those cute lil prolegs (you've caught them perfectly in pic1) that I realised his/her head was up the other end!

Hard choice - I love those "feet" in pic1 and the postabdominal "thingies" in pic2 ....however for me the dramatic composition of pic3 (looks like a frame from one of those modern films like Antz) just edges it in front. So Pic3 has it ...hmmmm but I do like those "feet"....

Bruce,

My thoughts exactly. I liked the feet from #1, the head and red "tail' from #2, and the composition from #3. I couldn't decide.

Thanks for the comments,

Ken

#3 is like "Strike a pose for me". I bet if you ask the catepillar, he knows Wim personally :-)

EDIT: Sorry, a bit of History, Wim posts some amazing insect shots. Someone, one time made the comment that Wim takes these things and trains them rigorously for several months to do his bidding, so that when he asks for a pose, he gets a really nice one.

Hah! I had forgotten that exchange, but yes indeed, it's right here. :D

Nice pics, Ken. That critter had me fooled, too!

More great pictures ken....I like #3 (they are a great series all together IMO) I notice the red globs coming out of the things on his back are getting bigger, he probably thought you were going to eat him. :wink:
