Garden visitor

I saw a humungous caterpillar in our pond today.  Now, I’m pretty sure we don’t have aquatic caterpillars in this country (does anywhere?).  It was crawling over the surface of the pond, going from plant to plant until it found the overhanging leaf of a red hot poker plant.
 
Searching the net it looks like it is a  Hawk moth

About snodlander
Snodlander is the nom de plume of Bob Simms. He is an IT trainer, but it's not as glamourous as it sounds. When he's not enthralling classes with adventures through SQL Server, he writes, draws and drinks his own home-brew. Buy his novel on Amazon Kindle at The Young Demon Keeper, It's 74p, for crying out loud!
