Hi Hannu,

This is one of the better worm images that I have seen.

I have seen this type of creature only a few times in nature.

Your have presented this well.

Best Regards, Mike

Thank You Mike !

For your kind commenting. These worms live around my Summer cottage - and where the syringa grows Sphingidae (Sphinx ligustri) moths are flying now too - as I write this text and enjoy the smell of jasmins :) br Hannu

Thank You JC !

For commenting -  You were wondering about the composition of this worm portrait ? Well, having had the privilege of knowing these worms since child (we used to study and have them as pets for the Summer and then watch “the hatching” early in the Summer). I felt that best justice is done if the photograph revels the essential and give emphasize to the “thorn and colours” which are the true lines of defence:) br Hannu

Most interesting an well photographed.  I have never seen this kind of worm, only the uaual 'earth' worm. 

Usually I feel people don't realise that they can use their cameras in the 'portrait ' mode with wasted space on either side of the subject ... for once here I feel 'landscape' would have been better.
