Excited to see the Black Swallow Caterpillars on Rue plant. On 17th May, my Mother’s Birthday, I had a female Black Swallowtail laying eggs. Then we had snow on 20th May. I usually see the small black spots eggs on the leaf, but I did not see them recently.Today a surprise I saw around 9.30 am one caterpillar on each plant.
