I think you composed well for the subject. the hues seem to be over saturated a little. I think the orange caterpillar would have really popped on a white line.

They had dared him. Oh, it was dangerous and forbidden, and no caterpillar with any brains in his head would attempt such a thing. No caterpillar with any common sense would even think it.

But they had DARED him. Double caterpillar dared him. TRIPLE caterpillar dared him.

So he did it. When a triple caterpillar dare is on the line, you simply don't think. You do. He did.

When it was over, and his parents found out, he didn't care about the punishments and the admonishments. The new-found respect and admiration of his peers put him on top of the world.

He was such a Brave Little Caterpillar.

I would have given this a 10 if it wasn't for the lens flare or spots on the left side in the trees. This is a great photo. I love the unique and abstract. This is great. 9.

the focus is good, but not strong enough for a Best of 2008 image

Hurry up little buddy! I sure hope YOU had someone watching YOUR back when you took this :-)
