Do you see what I see?

The winter had been very long, so we were surprised to see these little guys so early!  :)

ETA:  In case you were wondering, the caterpillars are eating the daylights out of my dill.  That's okay.  I have it there as a host plant for them.  I don't actually use it myself.  I do admit that it took me a while to remember what I planted there, though.

I thought these guys liked milkweed, no?

Parsley and dill are host plants. These are black swallowtail caterpillars. Hubs says that swallowtails are more the parsley family. (Carrots are included in that, as we've had caterpillars eat those like no tomorrow, too.) No milkweed for the black swallowtail. (Hubs looked it up!)
