This caterpillar will turn into a beautiful moth and when it does, I want to be there for the final transformation. I hope I can share the moment with you.
Thanks for your comments. This is one of my favorite shots in my "all-star list". Sadly, my cat found this caterpillar and you can imagine the outcome. I will be looking for another one this season and hope to share the final stage with you.
Great pictures - these are amazing caterillars. I do hope you get to see the moth & we get to see the pics !
the details are amazing!
LOL @Carol Snow Milne!
If I ever find one of these caterpillars, my life will be complete. HA! LOL!
This is what the Pandorus Sphinx caterpillar looks like.
Thanks J, I remember your shot very well. A real beaut. I hope I can get a good photo documentary of the remaining stages...
Awesome shots, John! I found an adult in late June: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/124...Looking forward to seeing your documentation of this species!
