Giant swallowtail caterpillar

After a slow start, my swallowtail caterpillar has been growing! He is almost too big to look like a bird poop any more.

He is kind of ugly and yet beautiful at the same time. I like the mottled, marbled coloring, and the tiny circles and flecks of purple on his skin. This is the first time I have observed this kind of caterpillar as it grows.
