Week 43 – Robin


The Laugher – Charadra deridens

My husband found this strange looking caterpillar floating on a fake lily pad in our little goldfish pond. He is a little wet but safe now. 🙂 He has one of the coolest faces I have ever seen… so I focused on that. Sunglasses and a smile!

Here is some more information about the species of moth—> The Laugher Charadra deridens

Used the Olympus TG-4 on Microscope mode.


Week 24 – Judy




I have no idea what kind of caterpillar this is, but what a spiney fellow. I also love his little pod shaped feet. He’s about an inch long and he’s crawling along a pine tree needle.

Taken with my Olympus TG-4 on microscope mode.



Week 10 – Becky


Caught in the act

For starters, this is not the photo I had planned on posting.  My husband and I were at the house we are renovating.  I was brushing off the stone on the column when I noticed this caterpillar on one of the stones.  I went to brush it off when I saw it slowly being dragged into a crevice.   I took a closer look and saw that an anole had the caterpillar in its mouth.  I quickly whipped out my iPhone 6 to take a photo.  I was only able to get off one shot.  Not the most crisp shot, but I still like that I caught the lizard in action hauling away its dinner.  I opened up the shadows, boosted contrast and sharpened.  Happy Clicking.
