Can you see the caterpillar?

I have to admit, I was dumbfounded by the remarkable adaptive camouflage of the Baron caterpillar, brought to my attention in this Daily Mail article.   Look down to see what I mean.

Here's what it looks like off-leaf.  It still kind of looks like a collection of pine needles.

Nature has a large capacity to surprise us. And this one definitely surprised me.
