This was way beyond my imagination. This is one of those moments that I'm so glad I joined Project Noah. Thank you for sharing!
:-D ! Good one, shekainahdalaban
If Medusa's hair have to be caterpillars she'll be choosing this one. For sure.
Thank you Christine and Chief RedEarth
Talk about camouflage! Wonderful!
Yes Christine, they are amazing. In this other spot you can see it moving:http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/987...
What a truly fantastic creature! It must look like a lot of caterpillars all stuck together when it moves :) Terrific photo!

Leuba, thank you. Injica, I swear I didn't Photoshopped it!
can believe this exists :)))
These are truly amazing ! great photo Sergio - thanks.
Hipparchia seems also being very variable.
And yours might actually be the same species: Phobetron hipparchia. The other very common one, accoring to funet, should not be in Brazil (Phobetron picethium).http://apiaiportaldamataatlantica.blogsp...

Amazing creature, great photo!
Leuba, seeing it on the leaf, one could think that there are several small caterpillars grouped in a small place...
What an interesting looking caterpillar- he looks spongy !!
