[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is not the best photo, but I still want to share it, because...
Nature is amazing!
This "piece of bird dropping" is actually a caterpillar.
What a clever camouflage.
I have no idea what this caterpillar is going to be when it grows up.
But I think it is actually pretty, if you can get past the scatological appearance.
Nature is amazing!

Hello Manyee!
It's very nice shot.I liked DOF,lighting and composition.TFS...:-)

Nice post Manyee,
As you say not the best of quality, but very interesting to see.
I've been reading up on butterfly and moth caterpillars, and am really amazed at the way they camouflage themselves.
I have no idea about the ID, but this is a very interesting shot. Thanks for posting

The quality isn't best but that doesn't matter - I'm glad that you've posted it cause I've never seen anything like this.
