Caterpillar - Giant Swallowtail - Papilio cresphontes

Caterpillar - Giant Swallowtail - Papilio cresphontes
Plano, Collin County, Texas, USA
August 2, 2012
I believe that this caterpillar is from the Giant Swallowtail Butterfly. I have been trying to photo-document the development process from the eggs to the emergence of the butterfly. The caterpillar is on my citrus tree (mandarin orange). (ID corrected - 06 Aug 12)
