They are now in the 3rd instar, so are still quite small (about 15mm long). Unfortunately they're not so good at posing for the camera and keep wriggling, so getting a clear shot can be a challenge.
I've set up a tall rig, to ensure I can get the camera up close to the caterpillars, yet keeping the camera steady when I take a shot. I'm using an Olympus Tough TG6 camera which has the capability of microscope photography, while allowing for the lens to be placed to up to 10mm from your subject. The camera also hooks up to an Olympus phone app, using Bluetooth, which allows you to control the camera remotely (it's a magic little camera).
So here are just a few of the macro pics I have taken recently. You may have seen some of them in previous posts, but I thought they might be good to see again. Bear in mind these are all pictures of really tiny caterpillars. The details are quite mesmerising, don't you think?
