Big Swallowtail Caterpillars and newly hatched 10.23.15

My original 3 are almost full size. I keep expecting to see them gone but they are eating away like crazy…wont be long. I hope I can find a chrysalis.


I’ve been watching and today was the first time I saw something that looked like a newly hatched caterpillar. There are 3 in this picture…2 in the next.

I love watching the changes in them as they shed and grow.


This is my first experience with these so it’s going to be fun watching them.

  1. Those caterpillars certainly are handsomely marked. The add quite a touch of style to the parsley plant!
