it is pretty. love those little hair spikes. :)
Not quite what I love the most, but your ability to shoot pictures ,dear sonija, makes it a pleasure to my eyes too!
Let's hope it's a butterfly one because his coloring would make a beautiful butterfly.....Those little spiky hairs are interesting....
Waoo it's beautiful.Ilove them your photos ;)
Great light and detail--fun to see.
so fluffy))))well done!xoxo, Juliana | PJ’ Happies :) | PJ’ Ecoproject
Mostly I am not charmed of caterpillars. But thinking of butterflies it becomes another story. Great images, Sonjia. I am a bit jealous of you because of that lovely sunny weather that I can see on your pictures. Next week we will get in the Netherlands frost in the night again. Wish you a great new week. Greetings, Joke
Such a colorful one.
I have similiar caterpillars in my garden too. I noticed that the hairy ones tend to be smaller than the smooth skin ones. There is much detail that is captured by you.
I think it's rather beautiful Sonjia and your photos of it are lovely. I wondered about a Red Admiral butterfly although I can't remember if you have them there. I'm not very knowledgeable about caterpillars and as you say it could even be a moth rather than butterfly. Do let us know if you ever find out, it's very intriguing :-)
They came out really sharp, with no out-of-focus areas. These are very good macros.
lovely markings but what spikes!!!!!
TexWisGirlYes, so do I Theresa:) Those little tufts of hair were hardly noticable before enlarging the photo. I think the fringe could do with a trim:)
We had a frost this morning so that would have made his hairs stand out if he had been here! You and you photos are a breath of Spring.LEN
Rita VaselliGood morning Rita:)I understand that they are not everyones cup of tea, but thank you for such a lovely compliment:)
NancyIt certainly has nice markings and colour, and would as you say make a lovely butterfly,.. without the hair!!
Juan GarciaThank you Juan! I also think your photos are great, taken with a camera that I also use sometimes.
NavaWe have had some rain but the light is great on sunny days. I'm so pleased you think it's a fun picture. I love his little red prolegs and hairy tufts.Thank you for your visit Nava:)
JulianaThank you Juliana:)It's a tactile creature, if you like caterpillers.
Joke (Jokes Camera)I guess caterpillers are more facinating than beautiful.Each to his own!!There are signs of spring every where, and when I'm out and about I already see so many butterflies, which is quite unusual.Take heart Joke, the frost you are getting wont last, and once again I will be able to see your beautiful photos of butterflies, as well as your excellent wintermist and frost pictures:)
S. EtoleYes indeed,a lovely colour. Hope he escaped the birds attention!!
StilettoI agree with you that the smooth ones do seem to be larger than thehairy caterpillers. So pleased you like the detail in this small one:)
Hi!!!.. Beautiful pictures.. Congrats and regards..
ShySongbirdThank you Jan:) It is a very attractive little caterpiller, and ofcourse I will let you know if I ever find out what kind it is.We do have Red Admirals here, but I don't think it is a Red Admiral caterpiller as the hairs are slightly different.
MariaThank you Maria for your very nice comment:)
AdamThank you Adam:)So pleased you passed by!
SusanThe hairy tufts are part of it's charm I think, but I could'nt help thinking of (Franjinhas)!!!:)
LenThank you Len:) Spring is definately in the air here with very sunny days, and lots of bees and butterflies everywhere. Sorry about the frost you are having.
Ana Minguez CorellaHi Ana! Thank you so much:)
I can't tell you, all I do know, it is beautiful. Great photos.
Mimo, że gąsienice są ładne, to wolę piękne motyle. Pozdrawiam.Although the tracks are nice, I prefer the beautiful butterflies. Yours.
Bob BushellThank you Bob:) Perhaps I'll find out one day!
GigaI agree with you Giga! Although some caterpillers are seriously pretty, I don't think they can compare with the beauty of butterflies.
Hi ! wonderful pics !gfc-coco

Sonia AguiarThank you Sonia, and thank you for commenting on both my posts.I really appreciate your visit.Hugs and Kisses.
Your pictures are so bright ... I remember the summer!Many greetings!
Ian MoldovanThe light does remind one of hotsummer days, but infact these pics were only taken three weeks ago. It's pouring down with rain today however!!
And just when the caterpillar thought his life was over, he became a butterfly :)
Such a fun close up, he is really having a Hair Day.
BarbaraHe certainly looks like he could find his way around much better with a fringe trim:)
Behold ,Esau my brother is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man.Genesis ch.27, v.11.So, hello Esau.
IanThis made me smile:)
