I have just discovered the second elephant hawk moth caterpillar on my fuschia bushes. I plan to pop it under a plant pot in a corner of the garden in the hope that it will turn into the moth next year. This is the first time I have found these caterpillars in my garden so it will be interesting to see if it matures.
I photographed a visiting Elephant Hawk Moth caterpillar and here is one of the pictures for you all to see. It shows the 'elephant trunk' fully extended from which I guess the name comes from. When disturbed, the caterpillar withdraws this trunk within it's head which makes the 'eyes' more prominent.
