Oh hi – who are you?

I was working in the garden today clearing up and suddenly something unexpected appeard, I haven’t seen one of these before. I tried to search for it to find out what it is and my best guess is Deilephila elpenor – do you know? Will this one become a Hawk Moth?

Wish I had proper macro, this is the best I could get..

  3. hi Øyvind,
    Maybe that caterpillar will turn into a beautiful moth someday, but all I see right now is a bug that is eating my vegetables!
