OMG! We got so lucky!
My mother-in-law has a whole family of caterpillars on her patio. It’s amazing to see the metamorphosis. It went from eggs to full blown caterpillars to chrysalis (now).
I need to stop by and take pictures of the current stage because I feel so lucky to be able to see it first hand.
Here are the caterpillar photos for what we identified as an Anise Swallowtail.
