Bird Droppings

I've previously done a post on on a bug that was camoflaged as poop. But Linda sent me these photos and they take the cake - the stinky, gooey, guanoey, bird-poo cake.

You are looking at the caterpillar of the Orange Dog Swallowtail Butterfly, a native of the US and Mexico. The Orange Dog is so-called because it feeds upon citrus trees. Becuase of this, they are considered pests. This little squirt may turn into a beautiful adult, but it is obnoxious in more ways than one while still in its youth. Kind of like humans.

Thanks for the photo, Linda.
