Default Rusty tussock moth caterpillar

Orgyia antiqua.

Unfortunately with flash.

I hope you will enjoy the pic.

Cheers,

Stefan

Stefan - that's great picture. Why do you say "unfortunately" with flash?

Clint, thanks a lot.

Unfortunately, because the flash gives reflections in the hairs of the caterpillar.

I would be happier with this shot, if I could get some better DOF.

Cheers,

Stefan

Good shot Stefan, those colors standout well

I'm guessing but is this the 70 -210 Nikkor? Exif data says f11, you must have been fairly close, so I'm thinking DOF is about right.

Nice colors, Stefan! DOF is a challenges with subjects with a lot of dimensions , isn't it?

Great looking caterpillar. I thought you would have used your macro lens?

Thanks to all for your warm and friendly words.

Yes, I have used my Micro Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 lens for this shot.

Cheers,

Stefan
