Elephant Hawk Moth caterpillar – Aylmerton 

I’d just got back from a walk in Felbrigg Park when the phone rang – it was a neighbour saying she’d been gardening and dug up an interesting looking caterpillar. I went round to take a look and it turned out to be a magnificent Elephant Hawk Moth caterpillar. Thanks Louisa!

..looking slightly more natural!
