Thank you Heather and Laura!

I'll tell you Heather! My daughter found this little inch worm and I knew that I had to get him in a pic. It was windy outside again so I propped him in my vase of wilting peonies and he tried to burrow into the center. At this point he was very still so I used the tripod mounted 100mm macro lens with the timer and focused the best that I could. Don't forget I was on those Tylenol #3's so I'm actually amazed at the hairy detail on his body LOL. I took at few at different F-stops and this one turned out the best. A little post processing and voila!
Cheers, Mary
