Default Tomato horn worm

Eeeek...........run for your life, it's the attack of the fifty foot tomato worm. Naw it's just a macro of one of these distructive critters, sure can wreak havoc in the garden.

Magneficent!!!!

What on earth have you done? Was it lenses? Macro mode on the camera? How did you get so close?

Brilliant perspective and colour!
Also is the framing good and the crop.
I am overly impressed!

The camera was an Olympus E10, with the MCON 35 macro lens. It was full sunlight as you can see the light shining thru the worm,I did move a tomato to use as a background so he didn't grt lost in the greenery. I'm not as close as it may appear, this worm was 3.5 inches long.

Nice work Tomsch. Scary and comical at the same time.

I sorta think the litle blighter is cute in his own way. But I'm not a fan of anything that crawls other than human babies.
Good work...
