i HEART MACRO

This caterpillar will eventually turn into the Zebra Swallowtail.  I found him in the Butterfly exhibit at the Norfolk Botanical Garden.  I will be showing more photos eventually but wanted to join in Laura's meme today.  



I am linking up with Laura's I Heart Macro here

He's very beautiful! And will turn into an even more beautiful creature as well. Lovely macro, Denise!

Yes, Grandson LOVES animals, and I lured him away from his parents on this trip with promises of seeing some wild animals. :-) It gets more and more exciting, as you will see as the posts go on! :-)

Laura said...

Oh how exciting, we need more butterflies, that's for sure. Wonderful image Denise. Thanks for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro:-)

I haven't seen the Zebra's caterpillar. Don't you love how they are all so different? I'm glad they have protected butterflies at NBG, we've seen very few around the backyard this year.
