Spotting

Description:

Green, yellow and brown shaded larvae (caterpillars) with small green/blue/white line of spots along each side. After searching photos on line I think they are most probably a variety of Hawk Moth, maybe White-Brow Hawk Moths. I am not sure they all belong to the same type of Hawk Moth due to the variety of colourings.

Habitat:

Eating grape leaves on grape vine growing in suburban yard. Posititon has morning shade, midday sunshine and late afternoon shade. Living in a subtropical climate.

Notes:

Lots of recent rain after long drought conditions.

I have moved this to the Arthropods section for you. Please update your beautiful spotting with the ID if you agree (I do think it looks like the species suggested above). :-)
