Stop & Look

Once my heart stopped pounding from the shock of almost stepping on this big fat guy, I grabbed my camera for a few quick shots.
a hornworm of some sort...
 As often happens, I couldn't really see the details of the beautiful color patterning on his skin until I downloaded the images onto my computer and gave them a good cropping.


The ideal mix of formal and informal rhythm that we often strive for in our garden designs.


If this were a fabric...

Fascinating but repulsive. Its the fatness beneath the skin! But you are right the markings are extraordinary!
