feasting on my carrots

Found this Mr/Ms feeding on my carrots. Left it be because it turns into a Black Swallowtail butterfly.

I had that visitor last year. I may see him/her again this year. :) I did the same as you-I let it be. So long as it didn't turn too destructive. Which it didn't. It was quite respectable.

Beautiful photos.

It is good to post pics of the good guys so we don't get rid of them.
