And with a caterpillar, no less! I love everything about this, Kirk -- focus, light, bug, eye catchlight, beautiful bg colors. Excellent, my friend!

Best Wishes,
Steve


Thanks Steve. The caterpillar was a nice bonus, I didn't even see it at first.
Right place at the right time.

That's one fantastic shot, Kirk! Detailed, great pose and great eye contact and also the fact he's got a grub in his mouth.
