Privet Hawk Moth Caterpillar

By fishiee
While trimming the hedge last night I stumbled across this impressive caterpillar to test out the 70D on!

Apart from taking a bit longer to adjust settings, as the new layout isn't programmed into autopilot yet, and the dumb exclusion of white balance button (or more annoyingly the lack of its display on the top LCD - who came up with that idea!) the resulting images seem pretty good on first impressions. They are pretty huge also. an extra 5MP is more noticeable than I expected!
