I planted parsley by butterfly weed, hoping to attract Monarchs. Instead, Eastern Black Swallowtail caterpillars are eating the last of the parsley in our herb garden. Yesterday I spotted five, today only four (oh!) as well as one little fellow about to molt. You can see him in the pic on the left. I'm thrilled.

Eight! How wonderful. I just spotted #5 again on a sage plant. Whew! I have some nectar plants swallowtails like but have never seen bronze fennel. Will have to look that one up!
