Theo Bosboom - Dewdrops on caterpillar

Extreme close up of a caterpillar (Malacosoma castrensis) with dewdrops, taken in the early morning after a cold night in the Veluwe nature area. The picture was taken with the MP-E 65 from Canon, that allows a magnification from 1 to 5 times lifesize. It is a difficult lens to work with, because a tiny bit of wind will already ruin your picture. Still I really love the creative possibilities it provides and I intend to use it more often this summer.

Location: Veluwe, the Netherlands
