[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These are larvae of the Privet Hawkmoth, Spinx ligustri, native to UK but not found around Manchester where I live. These were reared from eggs supplied by a friend. The vast size difference is due to staggered hatching times.

Beautiful capture. So clear and well presented. The only small thing - if the leaf at the bottom was removed, it would be absolutely great. Well done

Belle et intéressante composition pour cette étonnante chenille. Les chenilles comme les papillons sont vraiment surprenants de diversité. Jolies couleurs et bonne netteté.
Well done.

Superbe photo Geoff !
I like very much it.
