3 In A Bed !
Lens: Tamron 90 Di & Raynox 250 Camera: K7 Photo Location: Back Garden

These tiny caterpillars (no more than 1 cm long) were eventually found on leaves that I was inspecting after seeing that they had been nibbled but I was failing to find the culprit(s) !

This is just a major crop to show you the fangs on these little horrors !

Your first photo is awesome, reminds me though of a character on Sponge Bob Square pants that my grandkids watch. Very nice captures, thanks for sharing. Bob

Great shots. I like the second - such a small creature looming over me...The first is a close second, though.

Thank you Slowpez !

Rupert - thanks .. and I'm glad they're not in your bed too ..... otherwise that would mean you sleep in a tree

Thanks for your comments Ivoire & EagleM !

Freelancer - glad you enjoyed it. I'm sorry to say I don't know what moth / butterfly/ other insect they are from. I did try to find a match not was not successful.

Thanks Jer !

Thanks for your comments Applejax. For the background I had hung my blue jumper in the bush and was shooting up at the caterpillar that had come to the edge of the leaf !
