Maybe Alice in Wonderland knows what kind of caterpillar this is, but I certainly didn’t when I first posted the image online at another site (a photo friend came to the rescue and identified it as a hornworm caterpillar that would become a sphinx moth). I was photographing little blue potato bush flowers when I noticed a green branch that seemed exceptionally thick. Oh my, it was a well hidden caterpillar, and of course I had to capture the moment! (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 35mm macro, f/8, 1/60 sec., ISO 400, shade, handheld) (By the way, being a child of the 1960s, my title is meant as a reference to White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane)
