There are some spectacular butterfly caterpillars in our garden at the moment. Tailed Emperor, six of them on the Persian Silk Tree. They are nocturnal and sleep attached to silk web pads during the day. Then they go munching through the leaves at night. See more at:

So pleased to have them outside the dining room window,
