Papilio Canadensis
Found this little guy trying to get in the front door of the office yesterday....
None of us had ever seen a Caterpillar that looked back at us before..
I did a little research
and soon
the ugly critter will turn into a..
Canadian Tiger Swallowtail

Who Knew..?!

..Hope is Forever..


  1. I hope you helped him find a winter home so that next spring you can enjoy him some more.

  2. What a cute little guy. A welcome visitor to your part of the world for sure ! Who knew !

  3. Thanks, 'I ain't never' seen that dude before, I like the eyes!
    Isn't the world amazing from a child in school, I have been amazed at the transformation that creates the butterfly. THANKS

  4. I think they are fake eyes to make him appear scary to predators butI think they are just cute.

  5. That is a new one for me to see! We had a totally black wooly worm inching into our sunroom last week! I think he was trying to hibernate for the cold that is coming.
