|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This are worms of the Order Lepidoptera, but I donīt know to what family of butterflies they belong.|
They are amazing because they move as an individual, the worm that is in the last place moves in top of the others and goes to the front in that way all of them move as if they were only one animal.
Estos gusanos de mariposa son sorprendentes pues se mueven como si fueran un solo individuo, el gusano que esta de ultimo camina por encima de los otros y se coloca al frente y asi sucesivamente logrando un movimiento constante y unificado.
Place: El Viao, Cocorna, Antioquia, Colombia.

Strange animals, I've never heard of such a behaviour. You've made a wonderful capture. The photo is great, sharp, with a lot of details and nice natural colors.
Sorry, can't help you for a more precise ID.

Never saw it too. May be some kind of Thaumetopoeinae.
Excellent on details and DOF!
Very good black colour!
