CINDY'S SNAPSHOT: A butterfly-to-be in Kentville, Nova Scotia

Not all caterpillars are brown and fluffy.

Leah Beth Reagh-Sarson found this guy hanging out at a bus stop on Scott Drive in Kentville N.S.  He was there for close to a month, so she just had to take a picture of the caricature-like caterpillar.  It's hard to believe it will become a delicate eastern tiger swallowtail butterfly.  The swallowtail butterflies are distributed in nearly all parts of the world. They are found in swampy areas, alongside rivers, woodlands, grasslands and cities.
