Despite the Drought*, Life Goes On

I went out on to my deck this evening and I counted 
eight Eastern Black Swallowtail caterpillars on my volunteer dill plants. 
As I am not crazy about dill, 
the caterpillars are more than welcome to the plants.
Bon appetit.

       *If any of you knows a good rain dance, 
I'd appreciate it about now.  
Who's ever heard of brown grass in June?

In a few weeks each of these caterpillars will grow up to be
this beautiful butterfly.

Here is a picture of one of their relatives that I took a couple of years ago:

Now if we could only get some rain!
That's not asking for much, is it?
