Yay! Another swallowtail to wait for GrinGrin

BEAUTIFUL shots, Carol, and the shot of the swallowtail in V3 is AWESOME.

This has to be one of the most caterpillars (and butterflies) around, to me.

LOL to Moira's train relationship, but I see what she meansGrin!
I love the angle of V1 and the caterpillar going along the leaf edge, Carol, but prefer the extra detail shown in V2.

V2 for me. Great detail and composition.

When I saw V1 as a thumb nail I thought it was a train on a monorail. Silly me.Blush

Gosh, beautiful, both the caterpillar and the butterfly. If I were you I'd take it hostage and not let it go until it had become a butterfly and I'd taken a photo of it!!!
