Black Swallowtail Caterpillar
I was so excited to find 6 stage 4 swallowtail caterpillars on the fennel. I planted it last year hoping to attract the caterpillars but didn't get any until this year. They were on the fennel for 5 days after I discovered them but are gone now. I wonder it the birds got them or if they have moved to the next phase of becoming a butterfly. I wish I could find them to watch the next phase.
