The peppered moth caterpillar camouflaged as a green rose bush twig.

The clever peppered moth caterpillar (biston betularia) disguises himself as a green twig on a rose bush!       Predators, ( mainly birds) would find it hard to find him, so he can eat rose leaves in peace and security. 
(Could of course be a her)?
