Great excample of camouflage. Interesting photo and note.
This is my first time when I comment your picture but I really have to say that your photos are very interesing from the biological point of view! Interesting animals and professional entomological notes!!!
Unfortunatelly I can not find any details about you - are you an entomologist?

This is great! I have never seen the larva of this species of butterfly before and the fact that you show it camouflaged in its habitat is a bonus. Sharp and well-composed too!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

this is a absolutely wonderful shot you did here: the difficult subject of a perfectly camouflaged caterpillar (it's the illumination well chosen that does the trick, showing those white hairs at the sides) . There are indeed few persons who have ever seen this animal. You offer something wonderful here, thank you.

Almost missed this one! Very well done finding these caterpillars, particularly while hibernating. It looks very much like a slightly hairy Peripatus! Very interesting and unexpected.

Interesante y curiosa oruga retratada con buena nitidez y mucho detalle. Gracias por tu instructivo comentario. Un cordial saludo
very impressing series of camouflage, all the three images you presented. This one is particularly exciting for me as I know the butterfly quite well but would not have expected to see its caterpillars in the mid of winter. You must be a master of observation to discover these perfectly disguised tiny little animals on that tree. Thank you!
