The very hungry caterpillar

I like to think of my garden as organic, basically there are a lot of weeds that bring bees and butterflies and caterpillars, I never spray anything but as I was taking a picture of this little fellow this morning I was thinking how a few months ago I wouldn't have looked for insects like him to photograph, I would have probably tried to get him off my roses but now I take a picture a day I love the fact that you can see so much through a macro lens.

  10. P.S. I just got around to my own blog (haha, I have more fun reading other people's blogs first :)) and saw your suggestion about the Tilda Swinton movie! Thank you! (She is one of my favorite actresses to watch!)

  12. So true, what you said in your post, Justine! I would never have been on the look-out for insects, either!
    I love your macro - I have the feeling I see how much he enjoys the beautiful rose!

  15. Oh, how did I miss this? I was just coming over to look - I THOUGHT that you had said that you had a 60mm macro - I've only seen the 50mm - I was just coming to double check and, well, speaking of macro.

    This is a wonderful shot!

    SO, which lens did you use for this? Are you desperately in love with your NEW lens? Just wondering. I am thinking that I will take your advice about purchasing the prime lens - I'm still trying to figure it all out.
