Caption: Buff-tip moth caterpillars. Close-up of the larvae of the buff-tip moth (Phalera bucephala) on an oak leaf (Quercus sp.). Initially these larvae stay in groups (as shown), but they become solitary later. They are protected from predator by their bright warning colouration and their unpleasant smell.
