Description:

Very active looper feeding on brambles beside path through mature woods.Moving about in clear sight on leaves at tip of a bramble stem.Remained moving while I got quite close but when I got too close it went ridged (last photo) and stayed like this for at least 10mins (for 5 of which I was 10 meters away).It out lasted me,I got fed up first and walked away.
