Caterpillar.....I think, yeah, I'm pretty sure it is.

Look what my daughter found on my lemon tree.

I'm pretty sure it's a Caterpillar for a very large moth.  Any ideas?

I'd love to hear from you if you know what it is. 

It's about 3 inches long. :) I think I'll name it soon, but knowing exactly what it is will help in the naming process.

Update - figured out that this little guy is a Giant Swollowtail.  I've named (her - I'm just going to assume) Bella, since it means "Beautiful" and I'm hoping we get to see it turn into a butterfly.  It has started to make it's chrysalis on my lemon tree.
