black swallowtail caterpillars eating dill

Hungry caterpillars at work. Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA, 2008

One evening I went out to my patio to harvest some herbs from my container garden. I stopped and stared when I saw this gang of colorful caterpillars hard at work stripping my dill plant! I Googled “weird caterpillars eating dill plant” and found out that this hungry bunch would soon turn into black swallowtail butterflies. I was honored to host a butterfly nursery for a few days, even if it did cost me a few herb plants.

    That would be so cool. I’m growing dill outside but no hungry caterpillars for me. I would gladly sacrifice the dill for these little guys.
