Nicely shot.

Looks like you have a bunch of stellate trichomes also. What sort of plant are those from?

I have no idea as to what plant those are actually from but they remind me of some commercially prepared slide subjects that used to come with student beginner microscope kits back in the day. Originally they were part of what the larva used to cover itself as it moved along, a disguise of sorts to hide it from would be predators I assume. I used a pair if fine pointed dissecting tweezers to separate them from back of the larva for a better look. Thanks Rik

Aha!

Camouflage -- a nice bit of added info.
