What the Heck Is This? See The Answer Below.
Can someone tell me what this is. I imagine it is some kind of Spinx moth but have been unable to locate it online or at the library. For another picture of this interesting creature. Go to my other blog here.
UPDATE: AFTER MUCH RESEARCH I HAVE INFORMATION ON THIS CREATURE.
It is called a Tiger Swallowtail. Because of it's color I assumed it was a moth caterpillar. It is not, it is in fact a butterfly.
It took forever to find information on this guy. I was searching through archives of moth caterpillars. Doh!
Check out this link for photos of the caterpiller in the various stages and then becoming a butterfly.
