Great! You found one. I looked and looked for an inchworm for the Progress challenge, but I guess the rainy season's not the season for them in Japan. (It would have been "Inch by Inch")

Yep. Ribbon material here for sure! Clean, simple, good use of DOF to add another dimension to the image. The green color pop really jumps out. Congrats in advance. ;^)

When I saw the thumbnail I couldn't imagine it was a caterpillar. This is fantastic. I'm very curious at how many shots you had to make before you got this one.

perfect DOF, but IMO should have been cropped tighter to have more detail in the beast
