Paratised Caterpillar

This is something other than birds.

We came across this strange looking but colorful caterpillar, it has many tiny white cocoons on its body. Apparently the cocoons are of braconid wasps, which will eventually emerge and kill the poor caterpillar.

Happy birding.

Same principle applies to some of the cuckoo birds :)

Nice shot of the catepillar though.
