This wonderful caterpillar was discovered by Sue on the jasmine plant just outside the house in France. Max snapped the pic and we all went to the Natural History Museum the following week in London.
The lady in the 'Discovery' section was very polite and knowledgeable...and we were very excited that we might have discovered something amazing!
However she took all of 3 seconds to anounce that it is an Oak Hawk Moth......to be.
Sometimes 4 inches can be very exciting!
