Guys, why not moving? Or you lost confidence in me? Sure I may easily err in microlepidoptera and promise will never try to identify them again, but it's not the case with hawkmoth larvae. In summer I get lots of hawkmoths of larvae including Smerinthus ocellatа and Laothoe populi so may responsibly say this is not Laothoe populi larva but one of Smerinthus ocellatа. Here everything's clear, no mistake possible. Photo should be properly moved to the species. I already said below which species was right.

This caterpillar Smerinthus ocellata (Linnaeus, 1758)!
