Too many eyes, I find it quite daunting, but I do love this large caterpillar. I think it resembles a snake more than an elephant's trunk.

Stunning detail - it is hard to believe that such a beautiful moth comes from this understated caterpillar, but then I suppose it blends well in foliage, that's nature! Well presented too Brian.
