Seen this Caterpillar in the backyard this afternoon...
Thanks a lot Sabine for the name.....;-))
s. sabine krause found the name for it :
The Buff-tip (Phalera bucephala) is a moth of the family Notodontidae.
This is the Caterpillar and after the transformation it becomes a Moth ..

Shot this one 3 years ago , same one .....;-))

beautiful!! i just did a little google research ; )) and i think i may have identified it for you yay!! found a wikipedia sight in german that shows both the caterpillar and the moth which they call a "mondvogel". in english it's apparently called a "buff-tip". but i couldn't find an equally illustrative site here's the link to the german site:

greetings, sabine.

Well done on your research Sabine and very well done to you Fons on your super picture! I like the way he is navigating through the tiny forest of pink flowers!
