    Default Shrek caterpillar or a Hulk slug???

    ID: Indian Sunbeam Butterfly caterpillar

    An interesting encounter while traversing the new trail, this beauty was well camouflaged in the semi-curled green leaf. The shape of the beauty put us in a tizzy, confusing us if it was some sort of a slug or a caterpillar or a cross breed of both. As none of us had encountered anything of such sort earlier, this lifer was one of the unique sightings that we came across in this isolated and thankfully deserted location. With those two tube like protrusions, almost resembling the ones that slugs have, they, abstractly, resembled a shy, green bunny(rabbit)

    Interesting sighting. The protusions look nice. I think the AF point is locked slightly ahead, not sure. Maybe a narrower aperture (higher ISO) would have helped to get them in focus too, thus enhancing the composition further. Thanks for sharing.

    Stunning appearance. What is that toothpaste like white patch on it? :-) I agree with Mrudul about the need to use a narrower aperture than f6.3. Of course that means you would have had to bump up the ISO or used a stable platform to rest your camera. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
