The Daily Norm photo of the week: Cúber Caterpillar

This will not be the first time that my photo of the week has prompted me to bless the macro zoom feature on my camera. It never fails to surprise me just how much more becomes visible in a closely shot photo than can be noticed by the human eye, whether it be in the ugly form of an insect, or in the stunning stamen of a flower.

This week’s photo focus goes to one such example of close-shot mastery – a lovely little furry caterpillar that we spotted crawling along a random rock by the stunning lake of Cúber in Mallorca’s Tramuntana mountains. Its incredible spiny fur, burnt umber colours and rippling body form is all there to be enjoyed in precise detail under the zoom of my camera. If only this image was shot in movement too, as the caterpillar’s steadily rolling passage across this crumbling old rock was almost hypnotic to behold.
