Well hello there!

I found this guy on my parsley.  Don't worry.  I'm not mad.  It's a host plant and I have it growing knowing that I will be sharing with the wildlife.

Soon that caterpillar will become a tiger swallowtail
It's been a rather low butterfly year.  In fact, I need to purchase tags for monarch tagging, but I've only seen one fly over.  It didn't even stop to nectar.  I'm thrilled with any butterfly I get this year.

Have a great weekend!

I've had more butterflies this year than in years past. Of course, I've been planting as many host plants as my backyard can hold...;o)

What you do have is quite lovely, though! :o)
