Photo of the week: Over a Leaf

Over a Leaf

I saw this caterpillar in my backyard, it looks like a Camphorweed Cucullia Moth, Cucullia alfarata, but if that’s wrong please comment. Taken with my Canon PowerShot SX40 HS at 1/25s, f/5, 238mm, ISO: 800, with a macro add-on lens. Cloudy spring noon lighting, no flash used.

    Nice picture. This reminds me of a plant in Balboa Park that always houses dozens of caterpillars. It’s directly outside the Botanical Building.
