I was very pleased to finally got a shot of a red-eyed vireo – they’d always eluded me before. Imagine my surprise when I downloaded the photo and saw what was attracting the vireo’s attention: a giant caterpillar disguised as a leaf! (A bit of googling suggests that it’s the larva of the mottled prominent moth.)

Looks like it was curling into the “J” shape, juuust getting ready to form its chrysalis. The vireo looks like it can hardly believe its own luck! Cool shot 🙂
