Very cool caterpillar, but can't find photos that look similar. A bit over 2", very robust. Wooded area near stream. It fell out of high tree onto leaf litter, which it very closely resembles. Greyish-tan (photo looks greener). Lots of knobs, but no tufts or feathers.

This one was missing part of its tail, but it seemed to be growing back okay. I felt rather rude turning it upside down as it was still pretty chilly out, but it really does have the most beautiful belly.
Surprised to see some swans still sticking around. Saw a much larger flock earlier in the year in this same field.
River otter spraint. At a regularly used latrine site.
What a name!
