garden photography: clutching at straws

In April I’m looking for Macros or Close-ups in the Garden

(This month I want to see Macro photography or close-ups of anything you’d find in a garden –  so look out for unusual details) If you would like some tips then please visit the first post of the month.

I spotted this little chap hanging onto some debris as I was clearing a part of the garden yesterday (yes I know I should be unpacking still, but it was too nice a day to stay indoors). I think he might be the “The Drinker Moth” caterpillar which would be kind of appropriate given my love of wine, but I am not 100% convinced so if you know then please tell me in a comment below.

  4. Love this one Jude, macros can be so revealing 🙂 Lots happening here in the Cape as the plants revamp after a hot dry summer. Chuffed to have planted some new fynbos plants, including the endangered “Blushing Bride” and it’s in bud! http://wp.me/p1wyZM-1ab

      1. A nice challenge, Jude – there’s some interesting stuff out there. We’re hoping… dams are at 32%.

    Definitely a well captured wee hairy beastie. In return, I’m giving you another web https://tishfarrell.com/2016/04/12/a-pattern-for-writers-safety-note-no-spiders-included/

    Stud walls building and beam exposing – definitely spurs to getting out in the garden. Good luck.
