Quote from Fons Baerken:

Quote
Think this a Papilio machaon caterpillar, nice.

Thank you. You have provided enough information to help in identification. Insofar as I can determine Papilio machaon is largely an eurasian species with a few outliers in western Canada and the northwest U.S.

As this photo was taken in the state of Oklahoma, in the south central U.S. it seems more likely that this is Papilio polyxenes.

Thank you again for your kind help.

Bob

BTW, I like the sunflower above very much.

Have been out and without computer, last one went kaput after 9 years of intense use. Now I have a macbook air m1 and it looks like is going to work very well indeed for my uses.
   Here an image from Ronda, a city with the oldest one of the oldest bullrings in Spain. Constructed from 1780 to 1785.

Lovely sunflower Fons,

Great bull, Paco. Good luck with the new computer :)

My late brother had a similar jag, leather upholstery, makes up for a hard seat, nice shot.
Hard seat but still a comfortable car I guess? Thanks Fons.

An empty house in our neighborhood.  It's not abandoned, I know the owner.  The house is gutted due to termite damage and the owner uses it to store building materials.  Wish he would do something with this place other than keep his junk there.  Fuji X-Pro2, 23/2 Fujinon lens.
