Hungry caterpillar by Michael Matthews

Currently unavailable for purchase

Aren’t they all ?
A hungry caterpillar stops it’s ravenous feeding to pose for me & have a chat in the Royal National Park, south of Sydney.

My mate Mick spotted this little fella but allowed me to use it.

Photographed with a Canon 400D & a Tamron macro lens.

Canon DLSR, Aug 2013.

More little critters

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.
