My son sent this picture to me from the driveway.  Why yell, "Hey Mom!  Come and look at this!"  when you can just text.  Kids these days.  :D  I believe it is a parsley worm.  Do you know?

This is a shot I took a week or two ago.  Maybe it's even the same caterpillar.  S/he was smaller then and eating a bunch of dill.  Parsley worms become black swallowtails, so I hope that's what it is.

If you know how to tell, please let me know.  Whatever it is, it's interesting to look at.


  1. Oh it's soooo lovely! And I do think it is a swallowtail caterpillar ..... it's a beauty in the beginning and a beauty in the end also :)

  2. It is really a pretty caterpillar. I don't know what kind it is, but I hope it does turn into the butterfly. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I am glad it made it across your driveway.
