Thanks Ruth [photoblog.com]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.


2 sets that you might consider to watch:

Enjoying The Last Days Of Autumn With 20ºC [photoblog.com]

I’ve seen it sleeping there, so I tried to focus on it.

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).

Then put it in another leaf and took some more shots :)

      Is he always fuzzy or is he growing a winter coat? Nice shots!

      I like the colour in 4 and await spring so that there are colourful, interesting creatures to photograph. You've done a marvelous job of these macros.

      "You and I exist <> 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 <> 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- [i]L´Erotism [/i]
