Mystery caterpillar ID'd!

Hi c-birders and -leppers,

Thanks to David Ritland for identifying my mystery critter as an almost- 
ready-to-pupate Spicebush Swallowtail, Papilio troilus, caterpillar! I 
found a photo on the web for confirmation; it's at 
http://www.kwic.com/~pagodavista/spcswltl.html , anyone who is curious as 
to why I got so excited by the beastie need only look at this picture to 
find out...

Thanks again, David!
