Dear Susan,
This is a Black Swallowtail Caterpillar, and we suspect that parsley, carrots or some other related plant was found in the immediate vicinity of the sighting.

Many thanks – what wonderful service.  I’m so glad I moved the caterpillar out of harm’s way!  We have lots of Queen Anne’s Lace nearby….
