Butterfly eggs and caterpillars today!!

My neighbor and I watched the black swallowtail butterfly deposit this egg on the dill in the garden today! I clipped the dill and brought in the egg. Butterfly season begins!

I  found several red admiral caterpillars hiding in and consuming the Pennsylvania pellitory in the backyard this afternoon. This spiky caterpillar is about five days old already.
