Wildlife Photograph Hidden Caterpillar

Hidden caterpillar, Wildlife photography by landscape and nature photographer Melissa Fague

Spicebush Swallowtail Butterfly Caterpillar, photographed in my front yard. This little guy was really cool looking; the yellow spots on its skin are for defense. When it feels threatened it pulls it skin over its head to resemble a small snake. It even sticks out an orange color follicle every once in a while resembling a snakes tongue.
