The very large and the very small

There are few things more impressive than watching a bald eagle and recently I got a photo of one "striking" at a fish carcass to the surprise of an immature eagle on the ground.

At the same time there are also impressive things in miniature to see such as this plump caterpillar which I believe is the larvae of a luna moth.

The caterpillar is about as big around as your thumb and perhaps three inches long.

The luna moth is very beautiful. It is the same color as the caterpillar and perhaps 4-5 inches in length with long swallow tails.
