Insect...

Pretty sure this is some sort of sphynx moth caterpillar. He was as long and big around as my index finger. He was trundling up and down an oak tree.

That's an amazing - and kind of creepy - shot!
Thanks... I think I took about 50 middling shots of that caterpillar, from all angles and several different lenses, just to get this one really stellar one. LOL
What an ace picture!
Thank you!
Great angle!
It was one of those I took by simply setting the camera flat against the tree and shooting blind. I finally got lucky after about 50 failed shots. LOL
What a brilliant shot! I've never seen one that big, true, but shooting from this angle with the bark so beautifully coming out, and with so muc detail - terrific!
Thank you! It was a matter of persistence more than anything... I took and deleted at least 50 completely blurry shots or shots that just didn't have the right focal depth (the bark would be in focus but not the caterpillar's face, etc) before this one finally made the cut as best of the bunch. Thank goodness for digital cameras that don't need film!
Very interesting shot, and I commend your persistence. The joys of digital photography.
Thanks. ♥ Digital photography ♥
Such an excellent close-up view. You can see the details so clearly.
Thank you! To be honest, I'm still scratching my head a little, wondering how I managed to get such a good shot.
