A Few Creatures in My Back Yard

Mr. Frog hanging out in the pond, trying to stay cool.

I was watering my herbs last night when I found this beautiful little guy on my dill. On some of the photos you can see the drops of water on him. I hope he is the type of caterpillar that becomes a butterfly. He is beautiful!

Friendly grasshopper. I never realized their eyes were so interesting close up.

Great pictures, Kim.

Not generally a fan of such creatures but those pictures are wonderful!

I recently bought a book on herbs. I believe the caterpillar in your garden is going to become the Black Swallowtail butterfly. The book says they don't eat much and won't seriously harm the plants.

Your caterpillar is a Black swallowtail. Here is a link to it. :)

I think you will enjoy knowing what he metamorphed into. :)
