Very cool. And while the subject itself is outstanding, the background really makes the photo, in my opinion.

Definitely a sphinx moth caterpillar of some species unknown to me. You didn't HAVE to let it eat your caladium, LOL! Congrats on your AC for this fine macro!

Superb color and clarity in this close-up. Nice work. Reminds me of our horned tomato worms, which in a few hours can spoil weeks of hard work raising those delicious home-grown tomatoes.

About Dawnlisa

Hi! My name is Dawn, I run a restaurant on Bon Island in Phuket, Thailand. It's a wonderful little island, so whan I have the time I like to catch it's beauty with my Nokia N82. The weather here can be quite dramatic, anything from a beautiful sunny day to a violent tropical storm. The island is very rocky and rises high above sea-level, which was a major factor in protecting us from the 2004 Tsunami disaster. The photo you see here was taken on the beach at Bon Island just three days after Tsunami hit Phuket, the beach was beautifully clean and the sea the clearest we had ever seen, sadly the coral reef got very badly damaged and now, three years later we are starting to see it's recovery along with the return of many little fish. I feel very safe here on the Island and wouldn't choose to be anywhere else! Create your own visitor map!
