Found on Clover

During our dog walk through the fields yesterday we noticed a bit of strange colour on a red clover.

A closer look showed us this tiny caterpillar half covered in plant material.

I have yet to find time to look through my caterpillar book for a name but, meanwhile, here is another view. I'll add the name, if I can find it later.

Probably expecting an air attack.

You have the ability to spot the most extraordinary caterpillars. I don't know if ours are just plain in the southwest or if I'm missing them in their camouflage.
