Default You never know

I guess we can all add a new species of insect that seems to have a taste for banana leaves. Just doing a routine check of my babies this morning revealed a cecropia moth caterpillar munching away happily on one of my balbesianas. My bet is that I may have had an interesting look on my face when I saw that. Pic if you are interested (and if I can figure out how to send!).
