Viceroy Caterpillar - Limenitis

Viceroy Caterpillar - Limenitis
Sanbornton, Belknap County, New Hampshire, USA
July 7, 2012
I found this Viceroy caterpillar in New Hampshire. After spending lots of time using very specific search terms, I was finally able to narrow it down using this very scientific search: caterpillar that looks like bird poop

Very nice
I found one of these in NH, too. It was on a black cherry tree. It has now pupated and I am waiting for it to emerge.
