Parsley Invasion - Nature Picture Quiz

No, the parsley is not taking over but click on the picture and see what is taking over my parsley plant. I went out last night and my plant is almost all gone. I've got to get a few of these little caterpillars and put them in our bug home and watch them transform. I think there must have been around 10 or so of them eating up my parsley. If they were not going to turn out to be such a beautiful butterfly I would salvage my plant.

Can you guess at what they will become? Any guesses? Come on, take a guess.

Gorgeous caterpillar! And, I was able to look up the caterpillar so I'll let someone else guess. How exciting! I think I'll go check our flowers for caterpillars. I found a bunch of geometer caterpillars (inchworms) yesterday that will turn into a moth of some kind.

Have fun raising these!
