Inchworm, Inchworm

Inchworm, Inchworm, Measuring the marigolds, Seems to me you'd stop and see How beautiful they are. Inchworm, Inchworm, Measuring the marigolds, You and your arithmetic Will probably go far.

This guy was so small, but he could book! It was hard getting a shot of him as he 'inched' across the leaf at a pretty good pace. I did not use a tripod and probably should have. He was moving so fast, I thought I would miss the shot. Ah well, next time...if there is one.

The thing about photography is you are often so worried about losing the moment, you do not make good decisions.

You got him! Wow!! I know how we miss those moments. It took me years to capture parrots in my camera. They have sharp ears and keen eyes! :)

I think you have an imposter, it is not on a marigold.

Very cool photo! I love how green everything is. I don't like worms, so I'll probably never get a shot like this.

The marigold mention is a quote from another writer - Frank :)

Here too everyone is inching - inching towards the 5 dollars but not as fast as the caterpillar :)

Some shot like this one, I've never been able to get. Good job.

If there were 36 of them I wonder if you would find them in a 'yard'? Good pic and as AngelSharum commented, I love the greens in this...

What a great picture! I would love to know what kind of camera and setting you use! I could never take such a picture with my camera.

I think the monochromatic aspect really makes this shot stand out. I do like it.

Yes. It was pure luck. He was so little and camouflaged against the green.

Silly poem when you think about it. I have never seen an inch worm on a marigold.

trisha_1.618 wrote on July 28, 2014, 12:20 AM

Thank you. I do like worms. I like everything tiny. Well, almost everything. Do not care much for mosquitoes and bad bacteria! HA!

If we were inching as fast as that inchworm we would be making five dollars a day! ;)

trisha_1.618 wrote on July 28, 2014, 12:22 AM

Thanks so much. :)

trisha_1.618 wrote on July 28, 2014, 12:24 AM

Thank you. I was happy with the greens. If there were 36 I imagine we would be lucky to see one. I was lucky.

I used a Nikon D 5100. The lens was 18-55 mm. Wish I had a macro lens (mine was stolen!) Saving up for one. Taken at F/8, 1/60 sec, no flash

As many mosquitoes as land on me, I should have a photo of one but I don't.

simone425 wrote on July 28, 2014, 3:52 PM

Thanks for the info! I will have to remember that when I get a new camera because I love your pictures!

trisha_1.618 wrote on July 28, 2014, 5:45 PM

Thank you. I am really pleased with the purchase. Keep looking at the newer and better Nikons and drooling, but they are out of my league right now--expense wise

I don't see you these days. Wish you were back.
