Younger Daughter wanted paint & breakfast in the Gardens. So, I entertained myself while she did her thing. I was sitting there, minding my own business, at the edge of Swan Lake, when this little guy started towards me. For a caterpillar, he moved alarmingly fast! Since I had this flower at my disposal, I put it in front of him, hoping to slow him down so I could get a shot in. He decided that the petal of the flower made a good breakfast, so I had a little time with him. Apparently, he is a Tussock Moth Caterpillar, with his tufts of fuzzy hair which makes him so adorable!
For today’s Developing Your Eye assignment, we are asked to play with scale; to use anything and everything to convey size in my image. We are challenged to observe my scene before pressing the shutter and consider how all the elements in the frame interact with one another; to consider making an object appear larger through a ground-level Point of View, or to place two things side by side in an unexpected way.
These are also my contribution to DelsyJane’s RegularRandom:
