The caterpillar of the Elephant Hawk Moth - I found it in the front garden today - strange really, as the native food for these does not grow there... luckily, I have a small fuchsia will I believe it can diet on...

Good ones Paul, you want to keep an eye on pupation and see if you can catch the adult.
