Photography contest, Honorable Mention.

Smerinthus ocellatus – caterpillar of eyed hawk moth. The photographer writes, "Photographed in my garden underneath a Kilmarnock willow (Salix caprea). At first I mistook it for a leaf. I had a problem identifying this as it is similar to the caterpillar found in America."
