Beautiful bokeh! Almost looks like a shot taken at low-magnification macro.

Hey thanks! I have attached a couple more from that set. The first was shot with my 50-200mm WR at 200mm, that's my 3 y/o daughter in the background looking enormous. The second is the opposite angle taken with my 35mm 2.4. Didn't really get much closer than that, but for a sense of scale, it was about the diameter of a q-tip handle. Very small! And fidgety! Thanks for looking and commenting!

Not to take away credit from the original, but these two are much better in terms of composition. Specially the second one. If you have any kind of photo editing software, I'd recommend that you increase the saturation slightly to make the little caterpillar stand out more.

I think for both the first and third shots you needed to stop down a bit to make sure the entire caterpillar in focus. The third shot is better for that reason. For the first you still would have had the blurry pathway front and back, but the litter critter would have stood out even more.
