A wondrous and amazing creature .....

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?
