We found four tiger swallowtail caterpillars on our tulip tree!

This afternoon I saw the tiger swallowtail butterfly land on the two host plants (star magnolia and tulip tree) we have in our backyard for her. While I have yet to locate any eggs she may have deposited, I discovered four tiger swallowtail cats on the leaves of our tulip tree--evidence that a female was here several weeks ago. So fun to have this season up and running with all our usual summer visitors!
