The Giant Swallowtail larva are last instars now and one was 20 feet away getting ready to change into a chrysalis on the garage door. There are also now a few first instar Black Swallowtail larva on the same rue as the remaining two last instar Giants. My friend had an adult Giant in the yard in the am before I got there.
