Three stages of Milkweed Tussock Moth Caterpillars. Some recent hatchlings, a couple full size and one in between. Also a female Halloween Pennant, a male Blue Dasher, a Stink Bug Nymph, and a Plant Hopper.

All were shot with the D800 on a tripod using Live View. The dragons were shot with the 300f/4 with tubes, the others with the 105f/2.8.

1. These are the veins of a milkweed leaf so you can see they're pretty small, probably about 1/4"(5 mm).

2. One near pupating stage and the other still growing, sitting on a milkweed leaf that they've stripped bare.

7. Plant Hopper - This guy is also pretty small. (~1/8", 3mm) That's the center rib of a milkweed leaf it's sitting on. This is a 3 frame stack.
