Photo, and identified by: Olga Averyanova. Image redone at the website

Time of shooting/catching: 2012-04-01 00:00:00

Photographer's comment: Caterpillar is feeding on Citrus maxima plant ignoring lime tree plant. P. S. The species is identified surely right since this is a second egg-laying on the same plant. The appeared butterfly is identified as Papilio demoleus, caterpillars were unfortunately noticed too late, I couldn't shoot its earlier ages which should've been darker, bright white-striped grey.
