Sighting Record 1174431

Observation Notes: 
We have had a colony of pipevine swallowtail butterflies since summer 2013 on the dutchman's pipe (Aristolochia fimbriata) that grows in our front garden. We have 3-4 cycles of caterpillers/butterflies each year. The caterpillers eat the pipevine down to ground, the pipevine grows back up, the butterflies lay eggs, the caterpillers come back, etc. We have 100's of caterpillers. The caterpiilers crawl onto our front porch and form chrysalises and we have up to 50 chrysalises on our porch each cycle.
