My Grandson spotted this large Caterpillar outside our house. So took a few pics. Anyone know what type this is?

Macro mod on the Ricoh GR.

For those interested in Auto White balance, the AWB in the RAW file read 4950K and -21 green/magenta tint.

The measure WB using an 18% great card is 6300K, and -24.

The white balance measure using an Expodisc on a Canon, at the same time, was 6450, and -24.

The white balance measure in Adobe Raw, using a know wite source, a window frame (cropped out) was 6450, and -23.

Its set to 6400 and -21.

AWB was too cool using three different measures.


This is a close-up. The foot I left in the shot behind this monster belongs to a 12 year old friend of my Grandson.

It could be the caterpillar of the Cecropia Moth (Hylaphora cecropia).

This is the caterpillar of Hyalophora Cecropia a saturnid moth. Google it and you can see images in all its stages. It changes colour through its life. I went through four ID books of UK moths before checking which country your are in!!!

It's a creepy crawly! a well known species across the world, often favoured by children under a certain age, almost always favoured by boys of any age, some because they think it will impress the girls, others to frighten the girls. No matter where it is found and displayed, it and its many cousins give Tish the willies [no pun intended].

'There but for the grace of God go I' the number of times I have used that expression without ever knowing its origins.
