Any idea what this larvae is?

Post  Mr. Green Jeans on 6/24/2013, 1:46 pm

Just found this critter on one of my sage plants.  Any idea what it is and is is bad for my garden?  I THINK it may be a butterfly or moth larvae, but not sure.  Google & my "Good Bug, Bad Bug" book has not surrendered an answer.

I live in Connecticut not far from New York City.

Thanks

Mostly likely a Black Swallowtail, or variant of swallowtail.

Can you get a better pic with more light? The blur/pixelization of your photo can be caused by low light...more light can make it clear and focused, and maybe we can get a better look at those spots.
