“Larry” is an Elephant Hawk Moth larva (caterpillar). He’s about 3 inches long and is an eating machine. He’s munching his way through Rose Bay Willow Herb at a tremendous rate. Soon I’ll have to put some dry leaves & compost in his pot and find a suitable place for him to hibernate in his pupal form over winter and then, hopefully, a wonderful pink & olive green adult will emerge

“Butterflies adorn the world and delight the eye”

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
“Of one Essence is the human race,
thus has Creation put the base;
One Limb impacted is sufficient
For all Others to feel the Mace ”
