Since none of my photos of the monarch migration where less than wordpress worthy. (little orange dots in the trees) I was happy to find this Swallowtail on my cabbage. Perhaps she is the mother of the caterpillar I posted a few weeks ago. While I was photographing and preparing to send it to my friend she sent me photo below.
She raises Swallowtails in an aquarium on her kitchen table. I hope she will post her wonderful photos of the complete life cycle of these beauties. In the mean time you can read her stories of rivers and life at Kit Hewitt,Wordpress
