Macro Monday - March 16, 2012

A bud

a caterpillar

and light

When I first saw this small tree bud I was attracted to the light shining on it. I actually thought the caterpillar was part of the leaf until I looked at the image in my camera to see if it was focused!  I wish I could describe the thrill I felt when I realized that I had not seen this small caterpillar, but my macro lens did!  So much of nature's beauty is overlooked simply because it is so tiny.

  1. Wow! that caterpillar appears to be glowing from within, as if it is translucent. You always show us what we would never see.

  4. That was my first impression, too, when I looked at the first photo. I do know that thrill of discovery that you mentioned. And isn't he exquisite, with the light glowing right through his little body!
