Caterpillar with orange spots

I'm not sure that I quite captured the brilliant orange spots on this caterpillar's back, but this little fellow was moving pretty fast and I was happy to catch a picture of him at all (with having to dig around for my camera, pull it out, turn it on, and get down there to get his picture).

I saw one of these on a hike. Had no idea what it was, but it looked really cool. Some searching after I got home revealed it to be a pipevine swallowtail caterpillar. The butterflies are impressive.
