Struggling to identify this catapillar!? .

Hi folks,

Found this little fella on my Cherry Blossom tree yesterday, he fell off. I photographed it and put it back. He had the most amazing vampiric style face. He was completly camouflaged against the bark of the tree, he looks identical to a twig, greyish brown, mottled and twiggy. He also appeared inteligent, following the camera. I have a photo if i can post it that would be great if someone can tell me how to do that as new to forum,

thank's Esme

Twig like Caterpillar

Hi, am new here too, if after clicking on add observation u click on attach photo I think on the right hand side that should do it...

Your caterpillar sounds great theres a few things it could be but I would take a punt at a Brimstone Moth caterpillar! (A bit of a guess b4 seeing picture but as it was on Cherry could be.
