He is a handsome fellow, isn't he? Hmmm never thought I'd say that about a bug, but I've never seen one so "up close and personal" before either! Terrific captures, as always! Hope you have a great week!Sylvia
Great captures!I have found myself in a similar position with a whole bunch of grasshoppers in my beautiful rose garden (at my previous hom of 12 years). I had over 20 rose bushes and the grasshoppers were eating all the buds - roses won!!
Difficult choices !
You and your beautiful pictures! err! Love the first two. So pretty!In our sea of love
Amazing shotHave a good day.
At least you can see the culprit. Pretty one at that. Something is chewing on my plants and I can't find it... Beautiful shots.
What a marvelous thing. You have to spare it, even if it spoils the flower.
Wow - he IS pretty spectacular looking!
my children...usually grab the bugs...and the worms go into forced early pupa stage...as a form of self preservation...lovely photos..
Feasting on dipladenia?Not allowed! I've been trying to get mine to flower all year, without success. Maybe you have sufficient numbers to spare a few to the moth-to-be?
quelles jolies macros de cette chenille vorace ! elle deviendra papillon avant d'avoir dévoré toutes tes fleurs !!wish you a lovely week
Wow, that was a cool little fellow - I hope he moves on soon though..! :-)
Two very fine specimens, the flower and the caterpillar.Thank you for your nice mail, it made me very happy!Also, I wander here on your blog through a beautiful part of our planet.Best regards from SwitzerlandHanspi
Wonderful photos from the animal and the flower. I would prefer the flower...Have a nice week.
I am really wondering what kind of butterfly come out of this one. Thanks for showing.
Hi there - the flowers will be back next year - but the caterpillar may not be! Let him eat!Stewart M - President of "Bugs have rights too" association of Australia.
Pierwszy raz widzę takiego stwora...Szkoda kwiatów, ale i szkoda gąsienicy.Zastanawiam się co z niej wyrośnie ?
amazing post!i like how uve shot it upside down n then used DOF so well in the 2nd shot!My Third Eye
Oh to be able to take photos like these! I'm on the side of nature, what will be, will be. If it were me, I would let nature take it's course but it's not me, so good luck with your decision.
Oh yes that little beauty can do some damage.. What great photos..
:) great photos!
OMG over the summer my youngest brought in a 6 inches long ( and about 1" thick) catapiller that made my hair stand on end! We looked it up and found out it was the catapillar of the largest moth on the east coast of the US!!! He was very impressive and squishy.... eeek!Good Luck!!!
Lovely shots! Maybe move the little fellow somewhere else and waits until he pupates...
Nawet gąsienice na Twoich zdjęciach są ładne, nie wspomnę już o kwiatku, który jest śliczny. Ja bym gąsienicę zostawiła,może wyrośnie piękny motyl . Pozdrawiam
I think this determined guy could do some serious damage to your flowers. He is something else. Like the way he has himself attached so firmly. HE does not plan to go nowhere soon. Great macros. genie
What a dilemma! One that every gardener/photographer can relate to, I think. Beautiful shots. Thanks for your kind comments.
An awesome photo of the guy ... such a dilemma ... I probably would have to let him stay.
These pictures are absolutely gorgeous!
The first two 2 pictures are fantastic.Greetings,Filip
Ale piękna, ciekawe co za motyl z niej będzie :)Pozdrawiam.
Oh my gosh this caterpillar is so fascinating and beautiful. I'd hate for him to be disposed of so hopefully he moved on.
a life about to be transformed ... hope he gets to fly free :)
The man has taste. Sorry. Shouldn't have said that. Perhaps you can take him and just one blossom to the edge of your yard?
These are stunning macros!!Beautifully done.
This is spectacular... You made my day special just to see this AMAZING beauty! Spellbound!
That's a tough choice because they're both beautiful in their own way.Great colors and details in these macros!
Tough choice, for sure! Is that the only type of flower he'll eat? If there's an alternative food source, perhaps you could move him there...? Otherwise, let him stay...at least you can capture his evolution photographically...who knows if that opportunity will arise again?! And, the flower will bloom again next year.
Cool shots. I especially like the middle one. The lines from the plant stem works really nice for me.
I'd leave it for sure. It would be interesting to know what he will turn into...
What an interesting creature!
Glad I didn't have to make the decision - they are both beautiful!
Gorgeous shots. I'll bet this turns into a brilliant butterfly.
Wow, I have never seen one of those very pretty hope your flower is ok.
