Observation date: June 26, 2011
Submitted by: amuzz
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I'm not sure what this is but I do plant specifically for monarchs, swallowtails, and hummingbirds. I have flat leaf parsley, dill, and a butterfly bush established. These are the only host plants I am aware I have. If it's hard to tell from the photos, the caterpillar almost looks like a stick. He's just hanging out in the sun near the tomatoes, however, the parsley is merely 2 feet away.
