Well I shot this caterpillar yesturday evening, I'm not sure if it 's a moth or butterfly Ever since we removed the vines from the front yard I don't see many caterpillars or butterflies around here.







This afternoon I was tired from working on my truck, and I wasn't finding anything to shoot anywhere else.I went back to check on the caterpillar, and this is what I found. i was having alot of trouble holding the camera up and focusing I only got 4 shots out of 30 today.





The spider dropped the caterpillar and hid under a leaf I was holding the camera almost completely upside down for this shot.

Great lighting and clarity on these vaiboy. Considering the positon of the spider and how awkward it was to shoot, the last ones came out really well imo.

Thanks for the comments, I really appreciate them!

It just bugs me that I knowI could have done better with the spider, I should have used a tripod.

Great shots and a really good job on the upside down camera handling.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Shot #1 ended up being a cool picture of an ugly caterpillar, I seriously thought it was a bird dropping until I saw it move.
