Macro Monday ~ April 30

I've been in a little bit of a photo-taking slump this past week! I just can't seem to get inspired by anything. I'm a little tired of taking photos of flowers, especially since the only things blooming right now in my yard are petunias and clematis! Don't get me wrong! I love flowers, but how many images do I really need of these two flowers! I went in search of something, anything, for today's macro shot and came up empty handed. Then, we had a quick little shower and I always like to find water drops, so I tried again. While looking around my shade gardens at the different hostas and the rain drops on them, I spotted this beautiful caterpillar!

Isn't he the cutest thing; from the tip of his little red head...

to his pointy tail!!

And, those four little tufts on his back and all that hair...amazing!!

I'm so glad I kept looking!!



  1. I'm so glad you kept looking! What a pretty caterpillar! I wonder what kind of butterfly he will become?


  2. He looks like he's decked out in feathers! I've never seen anything like him. I wonder what he will become? It's hard to imagine his winged self could be any more spectacular than his fancy caterpillar "outfit."

  3. You've captured some great details here!

    Happy MM

  4. WOW what a cool caterpillar, haven't seen one this color before.What a great job you did capturing it in detail, love it!! I wondor what kind of butterfly it will be also. Good that you didn't give up.
    Thanks for visiting my blog!!

  5. He's adorable! Reminds me of a little furry dog. :D Gorgeous photos!

  6. What a beautiful creature! I'm glad you got inspired again. Lovely macro!

  7. He is quite beautiful. Great captures.

  8. Wow! That is one gorgeous caterpillar! I think it should be called Rudolph (due to the red head). But actually, I think it's a White-Marked Tussock Moth caterpillar.

  9. Oh he is a cute little fellow. I've never seen a caterpillar like this. In fact around here I rarely see any caterpillars. This one is awesome.

  10. Oh Wow! This is the cutest and most interesting caterpillar I ever saw! What a great find!


Thanks so much for stopping by!!
