Vapourer Moth Larva

By Ajack
Snapped this cute little fellow last time we went out,He seemed to get the hump when I disturbed him and arched his back right up,I can only assume that this is some kind of threat posture he uses to ward of predaters,
Any way I hope you like him and thank you for looking in,Any comments are welcome,

Lovely, Alan, he has a nice curl and his colours are superb. These are so hairy, my camera has trouble focusing properly.
