I love the look of these weeds--almost looks like running water...



Found this one getting ready to eat some butterfly weed...

All great shots - the grass is very river like, but the caterpillar is something else.

Hi Rick,

Some very nice work!

My favorite is #1, but the other two just pop out of the screen.

I guess it was a combination of both. Serendipity for the lighting and work for the exposure I wanted. I shot a series of pictures with exposures varying from [email protected]/25th sec to [email protected]/400th sec to [email protected]/500th sec. The [email protected]/400th second gave me the look that I wanted.
