Spicebush swallowtail caterpillar on spicebush

Spicebush swallowtail caterpillar on spicebush. The leaves emit a phytochemical that makes the caterpillars sensitive to sunlight so they often will spin a silk to fold the leaf over on top of them to shield themselves from the sun, coming out in the evening to feed. Photos by Debbie Roos.
