Larva of sphinx moth on a plant in the garden. The light green and white colors, and subtle lines on its body facilitates its camouflage in this environment. It often mimics a leaf on a branch when it perceives trouble. This is a common tactic employed by hornworms to remain undetected by possible prey. This hornworm is a voracious feeder. Found foraging on leaves almost all afternoon.
