Black Swallowtail

I am back to taking pictures of insects again.  About a month ago, we found these tiny caterpillars eating dill in the garden.  We identified them as Black Swallowtail caterpillars and decided to try to raise a few of them indoors on Queen Anne’s Lace.  We have raised many Monarchs over the years, but this was the first time for this species.  We had two adults emerge this week.
