347. Tiny Thing

2010.12.13
pixel
I’ve seen it sleeping there, so I tried to focus on it.
pixel
Although It was not focusing the way I wanted, then I cut the thing and put it front of a leaf of a rose (this way you guys can see how extremely small and thin it is).
pixel
Then put it in another leaf and took some more shots :)

Psilogaster loti

Thanks Ruth for the help on the ID.

I took all these pictures like 1 month ago, and I ended up forgetting them in my folder for caterpillars. So, I didn’t want to leave this beauty alone and show my shots of them.

davidcardona "You and I exist <<inside>> ourselves. But so does a dog, and in that case so do insects and creatures smaller still however far we may go down the scale of organisms from complex to primitive we cannot draw a line between those wich exist inside themselves and those wich do not. This <<inside>> existence cannot be a result of greater complexity. If the tiniest creatures did not have their own kind of inside existence to begin with, no increase in complexity could endow them with it." -Georges Bataille- L´Erotism

Fantastic!

????? Nice work Rick. I've done this type of shoot and it's clear to see you know what you're doing. One does not get this good of a result without working at it.

Hats off to you my friend.
