Zebra Swallowtail Caterpillar

After turning over literally thousands of pawpaw leaves (that's the host plant for the species Eurytides marcellus,) I finally found a zebra swallowtail caterpillar. It is one of the earlier instars and fairly small (about 1.5 centimeters.) As it goes with most things, once I find an organism I seem to find it more often so maybe I'll have images of a larger individual soon.
