Just this morning look who came to visit… wish I would have taken a better shot of this beautiful swallowtail butterfly. Looks like something was munching on a wing 🙂 You can see the straw-like tongue trying to slurp up the nectar of the flowers. I really think it recently left its chrysalis as it just seemed like it was just learning to fly and was a little slow. I got quite close to it before it flew off in search of more “meals”.
Linking to Fiesta Friday #185
One of my swallowtail caterpillars made it full cycle… from an egg, to a caterpillar, pupa then full grown as a butterfly.
They just love parsley and dill too…
