i HART MACRO


I shared this caterpillar once before.  He will turn into a Zebra Swallowtail butterfly, and you can see what he will look like at this website




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

This is amazing, and he can also crawl upside down too.

I am always amazed at just how much food they can squeeze into those small bodies. Often plants I really, really would prefer they weren't munching. Love butterflies though - so pay the price.

Fascinating photos! We have a Swallowtail that visits our garden, and I think it's caterpillars also live in trees, but I've never seen them. I'll have to look for them next year.

Gorgeous photos, Denise, but caterpillars are not my favorite creatures right now because they keep eating the leaves of my tangerine tree. :-)

Beautiful in every possible way! Thanks for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro:-)
