The two first ones with EP3 and 17mm lens, the rest with E3 and 50-200... Flash used in some.

Strange animals these caterpillars, they cover whole trees with their nets.

Thanks for looking. C&C welcome!

And weird they look, indeed... The caterpillars eat the leaves of the trees about completely - but the trees grow new ones for the same summer. These two species have a long history together...
