Just Passing Through
Lens: DFA 100mm macro w/1.4x Teleconverter Camera: K-3II Photo Location: Granite Bay, CA 
Posted By: ToddK, 04-28-2019, 08:08 AM

I pestered this caterpillar for some photos yesterday as he/it was crawling down my glider. It was moving down but I rotated a couple of the shots to view it better.

Thanks for the comment! Yes, I don't recall seeing one with the yellow tufts like this, I assume they just sread out similar to a flower.

Wonderful exposures. I think I like #1 the best. Great use of background lighting.

Hi Harri, thanks for the comment! The DFA 100mm macro is a full frame lens. However the HD 1.4x teleconverter is not.

Great looking caterpillar. Looks like it needs a shave though.

Thanks Steve. Little did I know that many of these furry caterpillars are toxic if you touch them. I picked it up a couple of times to re-position it but luckily I didn't have any kind of reaction.
