Friday 10 July 2015 08.29 BST
Since he was a boy, New England-based naturalist and photographer Samuel Jaffe has been fascinated by caterpillars. From 2008, he has been photographing as many different local types as he can, capturing the survival techniques and defensive adaptations of these remarkable and beautiful creatures.
His work and passion has resulted in the Caterpillar Lab, an educational, non-profit organisation promoting the diversity of caterpillars of the American north east.
An exhibition of his work, Life on a Leaf Edge, is taking place at Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio, until 27 September, 2015
