Yesterday the black swallowtail that I have been watching emerged from its chrysalis. Since I was at work I ran over to the Como Zoo, over my lunch hour, and released him in their butterfly garden. Here are a couple of pics that I took to commemorate the moment.
While I was at the butterfly garden I found a black swallowtail caterpillar in the parsley.This little guy better hurry up. It will not be too long before the cold weather gets here.
