You certainly know a wealth of information about the insect world, Kathy. Appreciated your narrative too. A tremendous composition filled with a sense of wonder and beauty too with the addition of the colorful plants. What a promise of becoming is portrayed here. Big congrats on your POTD!

Amazing, Kathy. Do you know what kind of plant that is? Congratulations on a magnificent win!

This is a really superb macro, Kathy! Your capture of four stages of the caterpillar's life cycle in one image is really remarkable--and to have them captured in such a sharp and perfectly composed image is even more so! Many congratulations on this outstanding POTD!

Thank you Barbara and Joyce. Joyce, I believe this is a dill plant, a member of the carrot family which is the host plant for the swallowtail.
Tom Briggs commented on August 19, 2008 23:12:
Excellent capture, Kathy and thank you for the lesson also. It took me a second to find the forth. Wonderful color and clarity. Congrats on your POTD.

Thank you Gerda and Tom. If you look really close Tom you might see the 1st instar. It is really tiny.
