    I adore the 2nd- 4th photos... Great composition, and the colours are especially rich and beautiful

    Beautiful images, Walad,
    The caterpillar is a rather lesser good looking fella. Shure not many predators are interested in it.

    O4 Plain Nawab gets my vote - like the way the background enhances the image.

    Hi ALL,

    Thanks for viewing and your comments.

    @Andre: Take a look at the moth below. Its wing tips resemble snake heads as a defence from predators (the forked tongue seems to appear any minutes) and the rest of its wing design like a colorful, scary mask:
