Photo Hunt - Numerical

The theme for the week's Photo Hunt is numerical.I had no idea what to put up for this theme so I had to strewth (as I imagine many will this week!) Today I tried out my new macro lens on another Toadflax brocade moth caterpillar (we had them first a couple of months ago and saw a moth last month).. well there was one of them and it looks a little like a number one....

what a gorgeous choice for the hunt. FULL of beautiful color!

Carver said...

He does look like a colorful and ornate number one. Beautiful caterpillar. Happy weekend.

ian said...

and i was thinking also that the metamorphosis from caterpillar to eventual butterfly is a step by step process, a numerical sequence of sorts, so this week's entry of yours is quite on the money too =]

and speaking of money...

What a great photo of a beautiful creepy crawly. Love your spin on this tough theme!

Hope your leg is feeling better.

What a great caterpillar!

It does look like the number one !

Happy hunting!

Thanks. It was the first uce of a new macro lens. The old one was excellent but focussing was slow and the lens extended which caused problems with some subjects

Sue St Clair said...

Great pic, and a creative take on this difficult theme :)

CherryPie said...

Lovely photo of both the caterpillar and the flower.

Great picture but only a number 1 if the writer had been imbibing.

Hi Jams --

You're not alone in being this creative... In particular, a few months ago here in Hong Kong, there was a photography exhibition with plenty of photos on that theme (of seeing numerals in nature and such)! ;b

Beautiful shot and somewhat numerical.

Eds said...

Wow! What a wonderful shot! It looks like #1 really.. :)

Whoa.. that's one huge caterpillar! Surprisingly, I have not seen this species before. I'll get lots of hairy ones over here. :P

Great photo! You caught the caterpillar in all its fine detail and potential yumminess! (I love moths, I imagine their caterpillars would be even tastier.)

James Higham said...

All your own work - gosh, I'd never realized that. Impressive.

Jama said...

A great idea! I bet when it metamorphosis into a butterfly, the color must be so beautiful.

Life Ramblings said...

very creative idea and what a lovely creepy crawlie.

Greyscale Territory said...

A boldly coloured caterpillar! A very clever symbol of the number one!

Ruth said...

Stunning colours. I was looking at the markings as being a bit like a bar code!

Lilian said...

feefifoto said...

You shoot such glorious photos.

jmb said...

Brilliant photo Jams, whatever the theme. He's pretty gorgeous but no doubt also destructive of your greenery.

Happy weekend to you.

KISSEDALOTATOADS said...

What a stunning photo! I'm back, for now,.... it's been way too long!! Have a great weekend!

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone!

A. @ A Changing Life said...

Well, it certainly does look like number one. Very clever interpretation. :)

julie said...

I like it! I think the pattern could be related to Fibonacci which is numerical through and through.

Jerry said...

Gorgeous shot - I think I'm going to have to get one of those lenses! This week's theme was HARD! You managed with your usual style. LOL

Have a great weekend.

Did you try to count the number of yellow stripes? Right now, in school we have monarch caterpillera. I wonder if I should get the kids to count the stripes since they are learning to count 100.
