Upside down caterpillar on a rainy day by 


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 . . .

    Love the dew drops on this furry lovely, Bonnie! Excellent work!

  • Thank you, Krys. Tommy and I went exploring in the pasture behind our house after a rain shower last Saturday. We found all kinds of bug and such drenched in raindrops! It was fun!
