Tree Pruner

This enormous Caterpillar makes short work of foliage and branches of shrubs in the garden.

 

Eventually it will change into a Hummingbird Horkmoth.

Elle a l'air d'être immense
Ray: Oui, elle est grosse, Martine.
as New Zealander, I'd have to say, "That's a bug bug".
They're so cool these caterpillars. Nice job!!
Ray: They make a mess of my shrubs, Rob, but I love them, and what they become!

Well he's certainly fat & happy! Great shot!
Ray: I didm't have the heart to stop it from eating my plants, Elizabeth.
He looks very well fed, I wonder if he's happy being this size.
Ray: It stopped eating new day, and cent off to do its amazing transformation trick, Sheila.

I think your Hummingbird Hawkmoths must be very much bigger than ours, Ray
Ray: My image...

What stupid legs it has Ray.
Ray: The legs are functionally sound, Chad.
The transformation of caterpillars into moths and butterflies is one of nature's best tricks
Ray: Perhaps even as cleaver as the change from Acorn to Oak-tree, Bill.

About ready to pop, the fat so-and-so. I can't stop looking at those suction like 'feet'. Great shot.
Ray: They are wonderful critters, Louis, and they turn into something even more so...

It's quite large isn't it, but I do like its colour scheme.
Ray: Big and handsome, Brian.
he's an ugly caterpillar Ray... and he sure is feasting on your branch....petersmile
Ray: I find he to be handsome, Peter. smile
