a Monarch butterfly larva.
Out of Time and place!!

see, today is February 21st or 2012. this image is NOT from last summer, this worm is happily eating the leaves on a 60 degree North Florida afternoon, near the end of February!
the plant is "tropical milkweed", some people call this a "butterfly bush"! The plant is evergreen and is green all year long. Next to this plant are completely stripped, of leaves, other milkweeds, the larva have flown.
Either Global Warming or of this year's weather patterns.
