Moved to Arthropods
Neat spotting, hopefully you can catch a shot of the butterflies too! O and the category can be updated to arthropods.
That's just the plant momma happened to lay the eggs on. I like flat parsley better for cooking.
Yes! Interestingly, they only munched the triple-curled not the flat leaf parsley!
Yes Black Swallowtail is correct...you must have pulled them off the parsley plant in the background...one of their host plants. If any are small you might want to put them back on the parsley....share your hers with a caterpillar!:-)
No, not a Monarch Caterpillar. Monarch Caterpillars only eat milkweed. These are Black Swallowtails. The caterpillars are in their 4th in-star...meaning they are now full grown and will be looking for a place to spin up soon. How exciting.
