Little Green Worm (Caterpillar) Feeding on a Rudbeckia Flower – Photo by Steve Troletti
Little Green Worm Photograph taken with a Nikon D300s, Sigma 105mm Macro EX, Light Reflector and the plant was stabilized with a home built articulated arm (PLAMP).
As July comes to a close we quickly realize that summer is half gone! This is especially obvious as you venture north. The wild field flowers have changed, gone are all the pretty spring flowers and the days are getting shorter at an alarming rate.
The good news is it opens up an all new world for Macro-photography, especially while waiting for birds to pass by, once more, as they migrate south from their Northern nesting grounds. (Example; Little Green Worm Above…)
Many new bugs have emerged and many more are mating on the new vegetation that has sprung out in late summer. One good example is this worm feeding (Photo Above) on a plant that is reaching the end of its season. Just a few weeks ago these Rudbeckia Flowers were populated with small spiders waiting in Ambush for little flying insects to venture. Now the petals lay low and the flower has become food for these little green worms.
