After finding and leaving numerous black swallowtail caterpillars on my parsley and dill, a few weeks ago I brought four of them in on my porch, feeding them with dill until they went into chrysalis. Interesting to watch the similarities and differences with the monarchs. We had three females (blue spots) and one male (yellow spots) successfully emerge -- though the last one took off just an hour before a major downpour. I hope she found a refuge!
