Luna Moth Caterpillar

Go ahead, you can eat it. I feel bad for these guys, because they're considered an endangered
species, because so many have been killed by pollutants and pesticides. I saw the "pellets" on the
driveway below the birch, and looked up. I noticed several branches missing some leaves, and then
we actually spotted three caterpillars munching away.

Wow, that is a gorgeous shot. The caterpillar really seems to glow. Not sure what it is, but could it be one of the sphinx moths? Anyway, it is simply beautiful. VV
