A bit of technical trivia...The tomato horn worm, is the larvae of the hawk moth. He will live his life in this form only to later spiral himself into the ground like a screw and pupate or chrysalise into an adult moth. That's where it all begins again with the moth laying more larvae. The "tomato worm" grows up eating one type of leaf, and if that specific leaf is taken away, they will starve to death rather than eat different kinds of leaves. Metamorphosis is simply defined as a change in form. Your photo is beautiful. The lighting is excelent and the background is pleasing to look at. Focus is nice, I like the detail of his pattern. I love the originality. there are quite a few pics of the tomato this week, like how you used the tomato worm instead. I fear that people wont understand your "something new", that's why I included the brief history lesson. This IS in fact, a baby hawk moth. So I definately see the something new here. Don't get discouraged if other people don't see it. Very nice. Good luck with the challenge.

I don't like to see the name of the challenge (new) used in the title... too cliche or something. There are lots of other, more creative ways to express it. I like the photo lots though. The blurring in the background is kind of distracting (to me anyway), but I know how difficult it is to get the background nice and clear when you want the central focus absolute. And sometimes a blurry background is actually better, I don't know. Anyway, good job, I think overall. A good study of an interesting critter.

good detail and DOF

The in-focus part of the picture seems too busy - although it is an interesting composition. Maybe if just the head was in focus, it would draw our view to the action, rather than having to look and figure out what it is.

that was my second shot I couldn't find a caterpillar, called them a tomato bug when I was young

Good picture of an absolutely disgusting creature.

Oh, this is an excellent shot,! Excellent DOF and focus, and wonderful to see those tiny 'eyes' on the catepillar. And a catepillar IS a 'new' thing. I am also just happy to view a photo that isn't of a baby, flower bud, puppy or sunrise! Wonderful.
