This is the Elephant Hawk moth caterpillar a fantastic, if a bit alien looking, Caterpillar which is commonly found on Rosebay willowherb. I removed a large patch of this fairly vigorous weed but left another patch, despite its seeds blowing in the wind and so very efficiently dispersing its seed  everywhere. I wanted to preserve the habitat for this lovely Caterpillar.
