Wonderful pictures! Thanks for sharing. I love the 'faces' on spicebush swallowtails - they make me smile!

Hi Jill -
Those butterfly caterpillars are 100% darling and today I saw another mother fluttering over the Spicebush getting ready to lay more eggs.
I go out and look for caterpillars every day. Not very many this year but more than last year during that awful heat and drought.
