These are Nellie's favourite. I think they are hawk moth caterpillars. Very big and squishy.

It was BIG! I don't want to think about what Nellie does with caterpillars....

She brought me seven of them in the space of an hour last summer. I kept taking them away from her but she found more. I had lots of pics of them posted. Sadly she did squish a few. She likes to hunt but rarely eats them.

Wow, you do get good nature out there in the Rift. Those are really pretty when they grow up.

Yes. I've just tagged them under caterpillar so you can compare them.

Thanks Puddi, I've had a look and I'm sure you are right.

Thanks hildegard. What an attractive moth, I will look out for one. We certainly do see some wondrous sights. On Sunday we saw what we are sure was a buzzard, about 50 yards from our house. Although I moan constantly about being in the Boon Docks, we are actually only about 30 miles from central London!

Now that's my kind of rural idyll - bunnies & buzzards & moths & that, but still decently close to a branch of Sassoons. ;)

There's buzzards in the woods near my mate's farm, & I've spent many happy afternoons lying in a hammock watching the juveniles learn to ride thermals. They're philopatric -such a lovely word - meaning they like to settle close to home when they grow up, so if you have one, chances are you'll have some. - Get your hammock ready. :)

I think I might be philopatric. Maybe that is my problem.......
