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

I thought it was a tyre or a man-trap from the thmbnail

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.

Puddikat says:

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.......
