Caterpillars like dill. True story…

My fingers are crossed that these guys creep you out as much as they do me, especially when they stick their orange feelers in the air and look at you like they are going to pounce on your face…

Lucky for these Black Swallowtail caterpillars (fancy Google skills helped me out with that one) they eventually grow out of their ugly duckling stage…

…So squish them, I did not, and these backyard friends lived to see another day—after being catapulted across the yard.

I am scared of caterpillars too! and any other types of insect, spider or small creature with lots of legs. hehe :)

yeah don't squish them, then you wouldn't have purty butterflys! :)

Oh no! My parsley is right next to my dill! Guess I'll have lots of butterflies fluttering around my backyard soon. :)
