Cocooning 1 - 2nd place, BCF, photos in a series

Uploaded: June 20, 2006


This forest tent caterpillar decided to make a cocoon next to my front door. It spent the day busily spinning away, and I periodically went out with my camera to record its progress. Shot in Aperture Priority mode using 100mm maco lens. Shutter speed 1/50, F/2.8, ISO 100.
