I was experimenting with my 300mm lens and an extension tube on a rainy morning when I spotted this caterpillar, feeding upside down on a wildflower stalk. Its spiky body was bedecked with rain droplets and the fall leaves in the background added a nice splash of color. Something different from my usual bird pictures . . .
