    Not the greatest picture, I know, but this thing was amazing. It was about 3" outback. Is there any way someone could ID this for me or link me to somewhere that could?

    Taking a wild guess here - could it be the early stages [don't know the technical jargon] of a zebra swallowtail? I looked through my Audubon guides and couldn't find anything similar.....but then my copies are from 1995
