Oh, thanks, you're cute. I make pictures in the morning and only when the sun is shining outside. This helps compact camera to make images sharper. And in the morning is that insects and butterflies go crazy. A professional camera facilitates our work. I really want to have one. You are doing a good job with their compact. We are here because we love nature, I suppose, more than a stunning close-up. ;)

My camera is also small compact and I cannot shoot beautiful close-ups like other PN photographers do. Not only that, I dropped my camera in the water stream and now it works only partially. Your picture is just perfect with nice background. I like different colors of the eggs/shells with some hairs on the right side of the picture. Very interesting. Good eyes!

Thanks Riekos. Seem small multi colored shells when the sun shines directly on them. I could not expand anymore because my camera does not have this power. Thanks Telse.

I also had never seen it, Lauren. It is very small, was hidden. These small caterpillars will grow. I think I can say goodbye to my avocado. Thanks my friend, Adarsha.

Neat spotting! I never saw eggs lined up on the edge of a leaf before!
