Southern Snapshot: Swallowtail Butterflies

I promise not all of these type of posts will be bug related – PROMISE! But these butterflies are just too beautiful not to share.

The flowering bush across the street from our house has been attracting swallowtail butterflies for weeks. It is so refreshing to walk out my front door and see droves of bright yellow butterflies flitting about.

Risking life and limb, I stood in the street under the bush to get these shots. I only got a few weird looks.

    You know what else is attracting swallowtail butterflies like crazy? My carrots, parsley, dill, and broccoli. Last year, we compromised and I kept the gazillion caterpillars in a cage and fed them. This year, they won because I have no bug cage and I hate killing things. Swallowtails: 1.5. Garden: 0.5.
