Amphion floridensis - Nessus Sphinx

Hingham MA

Collected as first instar caterpillar from grape in Wompatuck State Park, Hingham MA, June 29th. I have only found grown caterpillars once - it is much easier to find the earlier instars as they spend the day on the grape leaves themselves rather than in the leaflitter below.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II
1/200s f/14.0 at 100.0mm iso100 full exif
