Insect Of The Week: Silver-spotted Skipper Larva

A very interesting caterpillar, was feeding on Black Locust tree. What I really like is the orange spots on the head or maybe they are eyes. As one can see it was a wet & humid morning when I spotted this down at my local park.
Once again Canon 40D with 180 macro, ringlight for main & Sunpak PZ 5000 for a rim light. Sunpak was fired via Cactus V4, I have found that if the transmitter (connected on the PC port) is forward of the camera I get some zig-zag noise in the background, but if it is kept behind or along side on a bracket no zig-zag.
