Spicebush Swallowtail Butterfly Caterpillar, photographed in my front yard. This little guy was really cool looking; the yellow spots on its skin are for defense. When it feels threatened it pulls it skin over its head to resemble a small snake. It even sticks out an orange color follicle every once in a while resembling a snakes tongue.
