In My Herb Garden #3

This morning I went out to check on the Eastern Black Swallowtail caterpillar. I noticed that he had attached himself to a stem on my dill plant. This is the pre-pupa stage. From what I read it will stay this way for 1-2 days and then the chrysalis begins forming. And it should emerge as an adult butterfly in 8-14 days. I hope I am around when that happens!!
