Butterflies to Come


We have a lot of Black Swallowtail butterflies around our home in Grays Chapel, North Carolina. They laid their eggs and now their young are in the caterpillar stage. Last year the young caterpillars fed on parsley. This year, they have chosen dill. Soon they will spin cocoons and begin their change into adult Swallowtails.
