It's shaped like a caterpillar. It's colored like a caterpillar. It even has what appear to be spines running along its back, a feature common in many species of caterpillars. But this is no caterpillar.

This "caterpillar" is, in fact, nine very friendly birds — European Bee-eaters — crammed together on a single branch; their resemblance to the larval form of butterflies and moths is unmistakable.

So much so, in fact, that photographer José Luis Rodríguez called his award-winning photograph "Oruga de Plumas" (caterpillar of feathers).
