Black Swallowtail (Papilio polyxenes)

This model is not very accurate but it is small and funny. I made it in the Art of Illusion 3D-modeller (files are here) and animated "by hand". See also Larva Locomotion: A Closer Look for a larva locomotion clip (WMV 1.3Mb). Very nice photos of similar Papilio machaon orientis larva.
