Nature Ramble

This week, not even leaving the backyard.

It’s surprising what you can see if you keep your eyes open, even if it is before you get to your gate.

This morning I found this bicho (any insect or bug) chewing on the leaves of my goiaba branca (white guava) tree.

A better, but fuzzier view

This caterpillar was at least 4+ inches long, here he is stretched out.

Having lunch

Not an action movie, but there’s a lot of eating going on.

By googling, I believe he is a Hawk Moth of some description. There’s many different types… elephant, oleander, lime, eyed, death’s head, private, popular, etc.

I am going to leave him and follow his/her progress, hopefully with photos.
