The night visitor

Found this bizarre guy on the latch of my back gate tonight. I've never seen such a weird caterpillar before, but I looked it up and discovered that it's a "Spicebush Swallowtail caterpillar", and once I saw the picture of what it's like as a butterfly, I realized that we have tons of them around here.
