Black Swallowtail

Papilio polyxenes asterius


Black caterpillar with yellow stripes going lengthwise along the body and white & black stripes going sideways along body.


Found on parsley planted in our school's garden in Northern VA.


My coworker and her class will observe this caterpillar and then will release it into the wild once it turns into a butterfly.
