Caterpillar

This gorgeous caterpillar was crawling across a lane. To save it from being run over we gently picked it up and put him on the verge.

What type is it, Lisl?

I expect it will turn into something wonderful Pauline
I looked...it is an elephant hawk moth! Impressive thing!
This picture shows how big they are. I've seen a couple in my over the years, and I feel honoured that they come into my garden.
We've had a couple of these in our back garden in recent years, I just left it to get on with what it wanted to. Bill is right about its species by the way.
