If you’ve ever wondered what the caterpillar of the Spicebush Swallowtail butterfly looks like here it is. The beautiful mostly-black butterfly is common in my yard but I don’t recall ever seeing its caterpillar. The caterpillar uses mimicry of eyes and a mouth to look wicked scary to possible predators. The last two images show the real head of the caterpillar. Pretty interesting find in my garden yesterday.
