Eastern Black Swallowtail

By taggart  
Eastern Black Swallowtail

Egg and Adult Swallowtail- (version) This is the egg that hatched over night--I have been following the development of the caterpillar and have since found several. more cats. The adult Eastern Black Swallowtail has been around, the version will show (it) nectaring on the Turks Cap Lilies--- Chasing that frenzied critter proved a daunting task-- thus a messy image!

Sharing this in. hope you will find it interesting!

You have good eyes to spot these little eggs. You should add a photo of the caterpillar as well to make the set complete.
