Eastern Swallowtail Surprise

20 Jul

This beauty left eggs behind when she visited Sunday. Look for them, and baby caterpillars, on the parsley, dill, and fennel.

Update:  Almost certainly a black Eastern swallowtail.  According to this source, egg stage lasts 4 to 9 days… Should we rescue and raise one of these guys?
