Mystery Caterpillar?

This bright caterpillar caught my eye as I was walking outside the other day. (Moments like this are when I’m most thankful that I brought my camera with me!) I searched the physical features of this little guy on the internet and I found out what kind of caterpillar he is, thanks to this website here. It’s a Spicebush Swallowtail caterpillar… They turn orange just before getting ready to change into a chrysalis! What a rare sight! Enjoy these pictures of this spectacularly bright no-longer mysterious caterpillar 🙂
