Caterpillar by P. Karunakaran

This pleasing image depicts one of the world’s most prolific herbivores, a Lepidopteran (butterfly or moth) caterpillar, in the process of rolling a grass blade up to retire for the night. The eye-like markings on the head mimic the appearance of an owl, and this is often enough to deter potential predators. Caterpillars are masters of camouflage and mimicry.
