My boys and I found a Catterpillar. We can’t find what kind it is.
Early September in Vernon, BC Canada.
This is one of the Tiger Swallowtail Caterpillars, and based on your location, our best guesses are either a Pale Tiger Swallowtail Caterpillar (see image on BugGuide) or a Western Tiger Swallowtail (see Bugguide for image). The orange coloration indicates that this individual is nearing the time to metamorphose into a chrysalis.
