The colourful animal in this video, feeding on a coniferous tree, is a caterpillar of the pine hawk-moth.
Henk Dikkema from the Netherlands made the video.

Beautifully filmed. What goes in must come out:)
True 🙂 Remarkable, how colourful this caterpillar is and how relatively monochromous it will become as an adult moth 🙂
