Caterpillar's Impressive Defensive Display

Occurred on August 25, 2019 / Medford Lakes, New Jersey, USA

Info from Licensor: "I was walking along a boardwalk through the woods with my wife and son, and we happened upon this feisty little caterpillar raising up a threat display, trying its hardest to look like a snake and scare me off. It did not give up its act the whole time that I was observing, and did not break character. I later learned that this is a spicebush swallowtail caterpillar, which transforms into the spicebush swallowtail butterfly. My best guess is that it looks the most like a corn snake or a copperhead, although it looked to me a lot more like a Pokémon."
