I "caught" a very LARGE caterpillar coming down out of one of the elms
in<br>the front yard. I have photos if anyone is interested and would
like to<br>take a shot at what the related butterfly/moth might
be.<br><br>The caterpillar was that soft lime green of a luna moth, with
spots on its<br>body that were an iridescent blue & yellows.
