Suspended - large caterpillar caught in a spider's web. The caterpillar was alive


Two male hoverflies Myathropa florea having a fight - A male I was watching took off and grabbed the other male in mid air and fell to the ground before they separated and took off a few seconds later.

Thanks for the comments

Andrei.
Raw processing in DPP. Adjust colour temp of flash shots to 5500'C. Adjust exposure if necessary, check output JPG profile. No denoise, sharpening at level 3 process to JPG.

In PS I routinely use Noiseware pro to denoise at it's lowest setting - this takes care of all but extreme high ISO noise. I now find that I rarely have to do any levels correction in PS. I would then do any minor cropping (if necessary) sharpen using USM set at 200,1,1 but faded normally to around 50% (but adjust to taste) and save that shot as my master jpg at quality 12. I reduce the size of the shot for web posting to 9cm short side at 180 DPI, resharpen this with USM at 200,1,1 but faded to around 30% and save this at quality 10. This gives a file about 960 pixels longest side and between 100Kb to 200Kb size.

Any stacking is done between RAW and PS processing

Brian,

The caterpillar is a noctuid, possibly the Lesser Yellow Underwing.
