What I believe I have is a Polydamas Swallowtail. It is still "hangin in there". I've attached the most recent photo of "Polly or possibly Paul". I have a pipevine vine in my yard and have been watching the caterpillars eat - then they disappear. I feel lucky to have this one and be able to watch the change. I hope that it comes out on a beautiful sunny day. Last week I had two Monarchs come out and it took a while before the sun came out and Finally they took off. I live off of Lake Floyd and have a very small butterfly garden.
It has been fun an very addictive.
