Stock photo of elongated Vine Hawk Moth Caterpillarat the instar stage. The Vine Hawkmoth Caterpillar also known as the Silver-Striped Hawk Moth and scientifically as Hippotion celerio is a stunningly beautiful insect. Selective focus has been used on this macro photography image with attention being focused on the foreground and the caterpillar head. The multi-colored eyespots or fake eyes are there as a form of defence and protection whereby the Caterpillar appears to be a lot more menacing than it really is to any would be predators.
