I have a 10 year old, Dutchman’s Pipevine (Aristolochia macrophylla) in my back yard. My husband, Elton Grissom took the following photos of Pipevine Swallowtail (Battus philenor) butterfly and caterpillar. So exciting. We’ve seeing the butterflies for years, but couldn’t find the caterpillars or get any photo of butterfly. We are very excited!
