female black swallowtail butterfly. This photo was taken as the buttefly was emerging from its chrysalis. My daughter and I captured the caterpillar in our garden and kept it fed until it went into the chrysalis. We were lucky enough to be able to watch it emerge. Beautiful!!
caterpillar was found on parsley in our garden
