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.

    in the event that my pingback fails (and I would hate you to think I wasn’t getting involved!), here’s mine:

      I was waiting very patiently Sue 😉

  2. Great macro Jude. He’s a hairy little guy!

    1. Heyjude says:

      he is indeed, and also very small, the photos make him look much bigger!

  3. 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!

      Oh, thank you Liz for joining in with such beauties! Hope you get some winter rains.

      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

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

      I can’t seem to resist the garden 🙂

  5. Such beautiful photos Jude….think I should definitely start taking part in these challenges. Now that I have moved I will hopefully have time again.

      Moved? Where to now?
