Sam you are right about the Cassia bush and the Caterpilar. Likely he has been eating the flowers.

Yeah, looks like it could well be. They seem to be like this when they're eating flowers rather than leaves -great camo!

Thanks. I thinks it's the caterpillar for the cloudless sulphur butterfly. But I'm not completly sure. I know that the the cloudless sulphur butterfly uses the cassia as its larval plant
