A CaterpillarPosted: June 12, 2013
This is the larva of a Black Swallowtail Butterfly.
The larvae were found on a Bishop’s Flower.
This one is munching on the flowers after eating most of the leaves.
The larvae prefer to eat members of the parsley family and are sometimes called “parsley-worms”.
The top of the chrysalis is anchored by two silken threads. Truly amazing.
