65-365 Caterpillar

April 11, 2011  •  Leave a Comment

My boys love bugs, especially the oldest one.  He found his first caterpillar of the season and I thought...yay, my first macro "bug" shot opportunity.  My sisters and neighbors used to find this particular species all the time growing up.  This caterpillar is a Malacosoma Americanum also known as an Eastern Tent Caterpillar as I found out on Wikipedia.  I really, really love this picture.  I think the colors and focus area is just like I wanted it.  He was a squirmy little thing so I chalk it all up to pure luck.

The settings were: Shutter speed - 1/250 sec, Aperture - F4.0, ISO 400, WB - manual, Focal length - 60mm, Flash not fired.
