Pretty picture, but it looks like it's had just a smidge too much sharpening in post processing for my taste.

Aw, it's just gorgeous. Never seen such sweet feet on a caterpillar wrapped around a stem, and love it having a little nibble in V2.

I have planted extra parsley just for the caterpillars and butterflies to enjoy. My milkweed is blossoming so I hope to get some critters soon. This one looks very well fed.

Our native Swallowtail, which lives only lives in the fens of Norfolk, lays it's eggs on Milk Parsley - the caterpillars main/only food plant
