Even though it is officially fall now, we do have a caterpillar who seems determined to turn into a Black Swallowtail butterfly! He was found in a garden munching carrot tops. We have fed him dill and parsley and it nearly doubled in size overnight. The children have been watching this transformation! We are excited to see when other changes happen.
The caterpillar is in the jar on the left. On the right is a butterfly I found "resting" in my parking space this summer. Below are models of the butterfly life cycle.
Will keep you posted on the progress of our caterpillar!!
