Pipevine Swallowtail Caterpillars Feeding



Finally some Butterfly Caterpillars to talk about.

We’ve got two types of Pipevine, Giant Dutchman’s Pipevine and Dutchman’s Pipevine.  I haven’t seen anything on our Giant Dutchman’s Pipevine, but our Dutchman’s Pipevine has lots of Pipevine Butterfly Caterpillars on them.  This is also rather interesting (I think I’ve mentioned this before) because last year we didn’t really have any Pipevine Caterpillars, whereas the year before we had lots of them.

So anyway, without further adieu, here are some pictures of the Pipevine Swallowtail Caterpillars.

Let me state a disclaimer right now.  I’d be more than happy to pay for Leecy’s manicures.  She “claims” I interrupted her from her crafting, and that’s why her nails look all…..well that’s why her nails look like they do.

Now on to the Caterpillars.

Leecy - You SHOULD pay for my manicures since I’m used as a hand-model pretty often!!! Between craft glue, paint, bird bites, cat scratches…. no wonder my hands/nails look bad!!June 2, 2010 – 9:12 pm
