Stick Catapiller

Stick Catapiller

I am 72 years old and have never seen one of these Catapillers. This one was found by my wife Carrie in our Rose garden.
Geometridae is the official name of the family of caterpillars that look like twigs or sticks. The color and markings on these caterpillars allow them to blend in with trees such that people and predators mistake them for part of the branches. The Geometridae includes more than 300 species of moth caterpillars
