Topic: Kiron 105: Toadflax Brocade Moth Larvae

Last year, just a week later than this, my wife found these very attractive caterpillars.  This coincided with the arrival of my Printing-Nikkor 150mm, so I took a lot of images, some with triple flash. They are to be found here:

My wife found two of these caterpillars a few days ago. At first I resisted, having dealt with the subject so thoroughly last year. However, there was not much else around so I decided to show what my standard setup, of Kiron 105mm and twin TTL flash could do.

Yes, it's a very attractive species. The larvae were not there this morning. They were about ready to pupate.
