will become a Moth

close to home there is an Oleander tree, at the ending of November i did not expect to see a caterpillar in full swing but instead, perhaps because of the mild climate, this caterpillar of the Oleander Hawk-moth (Daphnis nerii) was looking for a quiet place to turn into a chrysalis. I went home to get my camera and click!
