    God's handy work always very impressive. I love the colours... Do you have any room outside your crop to see some of what the caterpillar is moving on? that might and I repeat "might" anchor the base of the picture a little more. Great Shot... keep shooting and sharing
    Either way i'm sure it looks great.

    Thank you, Reynold. The image below was shot may be two seconds after I took the earlier closeup.
    He was moving along the petiole and turned right and moved over the edge of that dry leaf and hence the blur. BTW, I don't know if it is a male. It is a moving and eating fetus! When the butterfly finally comes out after pupation, then only can we say! Any lepidopterist around?

    After a few moments, it swung itself head down to catch a twig far to the right of the image.
