Woolly Bear

 

Prints available in my Etsy shop here.

I had hoped to capture some late summer blossoms on a hike last evening, but the sun had already set beneath the tree line. I was excited when I spotted this guy, my first woolly bear caterpillar of the season. I shot it with my macro lens open wide, so the head of the caterpillar (at the bottom) is in sharp focus, while the rest of the body and the goldenrod are in softer focus. I finished it in muted tones reminiscent of a vintage photo from the 70s or 80s.
