Black Swallowtail Butterfly

This butterfly wanted to get at the dill so bad, it wouldn't give up, so I finally opened the netting and let it in, of course then it wanted out.

when retrieving dill from my herb garden, to add to the fennel in my black swallowtail home, i discovered another on the stem. sweet surprise! i don't like crawly bugs, but these caterpillars are so beautiful! they even seem to have personalities. some put out their orange antenaes (not liking the disturbance)more often than others. i can hardly wait to set them free, with wings.

Can some one answer a question for me??? We have a Swallowtail on our Parsely...we recently brought home 2 monarchs catapillers and watched them grow from catapiller to butterfly and then released them in our backyard...Now our parsley is only an annual...Can we transplant it so we can watch the Swallotail metamorph in side...Our will that effect it because its suppose to winter over in its Crystails??? Please email me at
