okay there is more than likely a place on here for this somewhere. And will be an ansewer to it l have just found a catapiller that looks like a twig can anyone tell me what this could be.

I think there is more than one type of caterpillar that looks twig-like, but I seem to remember from my bug collecting childhood that it could be a brimstone butterfly.

do you know if it will do any harm to the fruit bush if not then l will leave it where it is

Well, not really knowing what type of caterpillar it is, or how many more there may be on the bush (which sort of fruit bush by the way?) it's difficult to say. Obviously it will be feeding on the leaves and possibly the buds.Think you need more of an expert than me

thankyou jude5 for your help l have asked on the butterfly page to see if any one on there can help.
