If that was a question in a Zoom Quiz I'd have guessed E.T.'s Finger

Super detail

That probably makes it even better; ie no movement between shots (I know stacker progs can auto align etc - but still impressive)

A couple more, folks.

First' a general view to show details at the moment & the way the colour has changed to a more camoflage range of tones.
Also, the blue/green pattern of what will become the veination of the wings.
Note that the silk "girdle" support is still there, doing its job.
To give an idea of scale, the pupa is about 26mm. long.





...& a detail shot of a couple of the spiracles along the pupa's body. These are openings for "breathing".
Joints between the body segments are also shown & the bottom edge of the wing can just be seen.





Thanks for looking,

Roger.

Those openings look so much like the stomata of plant leaves. So fascinating, thank you for sharing these 'lovely' images.

As always with macro, you just learn more and more - and with your macro, more still. Thank you.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
