I see how its body is curved in the last image. So maybe so!


It sure looks like it. I hope so!


Yep your going to have some baby caterpillars! I would go out there and capture the caterpillars as soon as you see them. I haven't seen any blackswallow tails around my place for a couple of weeks now. They were loving my zinnia's. Here's a cool link about the black swallowtail.



WOW - that is amazing Kathleen - certainly looks like it. Hope you post pics of the caterpillars. Now I want to go look around to see if anything wonderful is going on in my yard. I haven't seen a butterfly for weeks here...makes me sad.

Pretty exciting Kathleen. I had a lot of parsley this summer and no caterpillars ate any of it! We were not without butterflies, guess they just found food elsewhere.
Good find!


So blessed ... and how beautiful!


If you saw the butterfly dipping down here tail repeatedly, you likely witnessed it laying eggs. Now keep watch for the cats! I've seen many cats here, but have never found a chrysalis. Darn it! Thanks so much for the purple poppy seeds, I sure appreciate it! Aren't you just loving those Queen Red Lime zinnia's? They have been incredible.


How exciting! The Black Swallowtail cats ate all of DH's parsley, but there are Black Swallowtails all over the garden and they are so lovely aren't they? I will have to try Bronze Fennel next year too.


Very cool!!!!
