Ah yes, there they are Mary! And great shots. I hope you keep returning until they complete their metamorphosis! I like the last one for the double caterpillars.

I think those orange creatures are young aphids. I've seen them in green, red and orange/yellow.

I like the last shot. The others are a bit under exposed and OOF. Interesting nonetheless.

thanks for your comments everyone. i hope to continue to capture their metamorphosis. tullio, i agree OOF-it was really windy and i had a hard time trying to catch them in a non moving moment. no excuse really, and i appreciate all the comments and help you guys give.

ya'll inspire me so.
