Large Rose Sawfly (arge pagana) - larva

Large Rose Sawfly (arge pagana) - larva
Love the defensive posture they adopt when they feel threatened. I've seen the large white butterfly caterpillars do a similar pose recently, but only momentarily (the whole leaf-full of caterpillars 'flicked' at a wasp hunting nearby). Sawfly larvae adopt this pose and remain motionless. Much better for photographs!
