This is a Monarch Butterly caterpillar. It's not the first time I've used these guys as a subject - I just can't get enough of them it seems. I doubt this shot will match the last caterpillar shot:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/758/120/602667.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/758/120/602667.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I used my new macro lens which made a huge difference in the shot from the last time I had one of these as a serious subject:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/620/120/456137.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/620/120/456137.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
The differnce in POV is also a large factor.

Congrats on your top 10. It would be interesting to try this with the new multiple exposure for increased DOF rule in Advanced editing.

Oh, nice job! I love how that little fellow is peering out of his shallow depth of field. Congratulations on 9th place!

I love macro photography. This brillantly colored insect is quite a find. The water droplets are an essential bonus. Well done.
