Pipevine Swallowtail caterpillar, Battus philenor

      I admit it, I can't get enough of these guys. They're just os odd. This was one of a late hatch in the Herb Garden. It's predictably on Aristolochia. I see the butterflies in the garden and they do have large areas of iridescent blue on their hind wings. The problem is they're shy and don't tolerate my close presence; hence they're another subject that I ought to come in on the weekend and sit patiently for....someday
