Yesterday (putting aside that I was contemplating/stalking the shitstorm about ActiBlizzard Real ID), we caught an interesting caterpillar specimen on one of our grapevine plants.
I’m sure it is under the family of the Sphingidae, but I can’t narrow the exact moth for this chubby cutie (11 cm long!). Deciding to see what kind of moth might come out from it, we kept it inside a Ferrero Rocher box, the same boxes I use to keep insects and try to identify them. I sent a “What’s that bug” request to our dear Bug Man to see if they can discern the species before it becomes the adult.

Creepy bug is creepy. Hope the adult isn’t as creepy as its young.
