How not to be seen
While at Hurd State Park last week, we came across a few caterpillars very intent on hiding.
This one chose to cling to the midrib on the underside of a leaf. It managed to select a section just the right width to blend in. It was only the bright sun back-lighting the leaf that allowed us to spot the caterpillar easily.
This one was quite sneaky – slipping into a little crack in a tree. It was right in front of me and I didn’t notice until it was pointed out.
Have you observed any insects lately which have been very intent on not being seen? I would love to see more examples! Especially of caterpillars (of course).
