caterpillars I live in Fort Worth, TX and found this green, horned caterpillar on my coral honeysuckle. I think it’s a hummingbird clearwing, but am looking for clarification on that. I have not seen any of the moths flying around. I’m also sending a picture of a giant swallowtail caterpillar because I didn’t see any pictures of them on your site and thought you might be interested. It’s on the rue which is also greatly populated by black swallowtails. Love your website! Thanks,

The Caterpillar you suspect is a Hummingbird Clearwing is another species in the same genus, the Snowberry Clearwing, Hemaris diffinis. Your other caterpillar is correctly identified as a Giant Swallowtail Caterpillar.
