This is a large caterpillar that feeds on vine leaves. I found it on the vine in my backyard the day I picked the last grapes. I was surprised how big it is, I followed it until it became a butterfly.
Greetings to all.

It is green, it is life and these days I watch its cartoon. Much interesting subject and this will appear after spring. Well exposed and composed, nice shot.
