I find lots of insects to be beautiful whereas many do not but even by my standards this one is UGLY.

Nicely done. Nice dark tones- minimal light reflection.

Thanks all, hopefully I haven't given you all nightmares... ;)

@Mountain Mamma I think it is a Peppered Moth larvae/ caterpillar but I am not 100% on that.

Great images Ryan , he will be a beauty one day in the near future, a bit like the ugly duckling who became a beautiful swan. on a second look i noticed the mites on the underside of the grass stem and a few what look like eggs so i hope he hasn't ingested any of them.

Cheers Stephen, I haven't seen the moth stage of this before but going by pics on the web it is quite pretty. I thought those little critters were springtails but on second look I think you might be right on the mite id. As they are so widespread on the leaves I reckon they are more interested in the plant rather than being a parasite of other insects.

That kind of reminds me of the phrase "making eyes at you" - as this one is all eyes for sure! Seriously, great macro work, good details to see there.
