Original Art Photography Series by @velimir #410 'The Prisoner'

'The Prisoner'

The caterpillar is caught at a long tread of a spider-web. It was quite difficult to get a proper shot with the macro lens because the poor prisoner was swaying all the time. I took over 20 takes. I found this one to be the best one and closest to my vision. What's more, I've never seen something like this before.

The caterpillar, the main object of our photograph, is excluded from the background. The colours and tonalities of both foreground and background are almost the same, so the limited depth of field perfectly does the trick. The main object gets more attention from this exclusion. The caterpillar's position is interesting. The curve it creates adds tension and a bit of hard-work feeling. Well, it is fighting for its life, right?

The thread of spider-web from which the poor thing was hanging can be seen at the top. I have freed the caterpillar, let it live on. A good trade, life for photo rights! ;)

Enjoy! :)

Wow, what a beautiful job, @velimir. I imagine the movements of that little caterpillar and its desperation to take care of the spider web, only an expert like you could photograph something like that in a perfect way. The colors are amazing, a perfect hue too. How good that you have released the caterpillar, a good business, without a doubt. :-)

Excellent work, @velimir, despite the difficulties you had to capture the caterpillar, I am very good photography. The colors are very beautiful, a composition of them quite striking. Poor caterpillar! She must have suffered a lot from being trapped in the spider's web, whether you have untied her, @velimir. :-)

hahahaha. The caterpillar made a good deal! You made a very good picture. Congratulations, @velimir. To make it you need not only a good camera, but also a good eye to perceive the angles. With it we can see how strong or delicate some animals can be! For example, how strong a spider's thread can be! Greetings!

Your posts are good You write well I pray You can succeed in the coming life I'd love to meet you I will be with each of your posts That you will be a successful person one day You should work harder Thank you very much You can become a successful man God always keeps your family happy Always be happy

This scene I have also seen several times especially when I visit my native village. Caterpillar and spider's net is always a very funny yet interesting story but other than this spider's net also trap the house fly very typical. I do not know how many of you know this fact but I have also seen this thing several times.

As far as the photograph is concerned I would like to say that Bro @velimir has taken this awesome shot with brilliant skills. Look at the net of the spider even the net is visible. How awesome shot and all this story <3

The spider has remained without a dinner @cleverbot


I think you might need a reboot, old chap - you're getting a little muddled it would seem.

Wow Excellent treatment made the caterpillar. I liked photography very much
The colors are very striking, very good photo @velimir. Always surprising us with their publications.
