A garden is full of wondrous things - and nothing can be more wondrous or amazing as a incredibly beautiful creature munching it way though the plants! Destructive as it may be, it is part of nature and I prefer not to use pesticide or insecticide in the garden unless absolutely necessary.
So here it is, a big fat caterpillar, some 5" long!
The grey-pink patches are iridescent, making it difficult to photograph.
You think the tail looks like the head? Deceptive, huh!
Just look at the mouth parts!
Is that not a wondrous and amazing creature?
