19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Camouflage: 11-cm-long caterpillar

I found this caterpillar during a field trip. I nearly touched the bark where it was on. I was scared at first but it was too beautiful to be scared. Carefully observing, I found not only brown but also blue, dark green, and red colors on it.
