Serendipity 11-3-09



We're still seeing Black Swallowtails in the garden.  They'll fly until we freeze.  

Today I counted six Black Swallowtail caterpillars enjoying my pot of cilantro.  I hope they're quick about eating and turn safely into chrysalises before winter. We'll see them again in spring when they emerge to complete the cycle.

  1. Do you guess they somehow know how much time they have before first freeze?
    I have lots of butterflies now too. Beautiful picture.

  2. We have more butterflies in Texas than we had in Florida!
