Spotting

Description:

Some guys take this mimicking thing seriously. This moth looks just like a piece of rotten tree bark. At first I thought this moth was dead. It had even what looked like pink worms on its back. Turns out it was alive, and those pink things were feather like scales. It let me take some photos, but when I touched it (checking if it was dead or not) it flew away.
