Cocoon and caterpillar


Cocoon and larva of a moth or butterfly. The caterpillar was green in colour and very well camouflaged. It was never noticed in situ, only after proper examination of the photograph during playback.

The caterpillar appears to be that of a geometrid moth. They commonly called loopers or inchworms.
