Weekly Photo Challenge: Possibility

There is no telling……what this little guy aims to turn into. On the meadow where we met him, we saw a lot of these: …and these:…and these: I’d like to think that he became one of these:(If anyone can enlighten me with regard to names and species, I’d be grateful.)

All pictures taken in the Engadin in June of this year.

    Wonderful photos – in the last one you can almost feel that he wants to tell you something important !

    Another professional shot 🙂

    • Hehe, I wish. In fact, it was the first week with the macro lens (belated wedding gift to ourselves) and I had wanted to go to Switzerland precisely because I remembered the amazing meadows from a trip about twenty years ago. Fortunately, the Husband didn’t mind spending a lot of time on this trip just hanging around taking photos of critters. (I am a lucky woman.)

  7. Cool Macros! The last bug, I have no idea what it is, looks to be giving you the stink eye!

    The closest I could find that matches the black caterpillar was the Giant Leopard Moth.

    The last two photos are the Iridescent Blue Moth.

  9. These are very cool captures!

    Great photos! I know the butterflies in 2 and 3 are fritillaries. Your guess is as good as mine on the others. 😉

    • Thanks, that helps! It seems that these are called Scheckenfalter in German (Schecken- meaning mottled and Falter being a term for butterflies and moths). Learn something every day! 🙂
