IT’S A BIRD …. IT’S A PLANE …….. NO IT’S A BUTTERFLY !!!
This is my last Black Swallowtail butterfly of the season she emerged last week. I had a male that emerged a week before her. So now I’m done raising caterpillars for the rest of the year unless I find some caterpillars on my parsley plants it’s still possible some might show up. Of course those will pupate eventually and the chrysalis will overwinter and emerge in the spring 😀
I had to keep this girl in the house for two days because we had a storm predicted and I thought she would stay safer in the house with me. She was eager to get released when I took her outside in the sunny day after the storm she flew right off on her journey to find some nice flowers to feed off 😀
