    How wonderful! I wonder what it will turn into.

  • I checked in my butterflies book but didn’t see that caterpilar so it might be from a nocturne moth. thank you many times ;)

    Such a big bold head!:)
    Beautiful shot with great clarity and sharpness.

  • I was in a rush because that caterpilar was running fast from me. I wish I had the head more with a front view but the way I was on the ground didn’t give me the opportunity. thank you so much for viewing ;)
