Casa Mariposa

I don't have dill in my garden but I do have fennel which is close. I've already had my first batch of swallowtail caterpillars on it, although I think a few were chomped by a cardinal. I'm torn between understanding she was hungry and thinking she's an asshole.

I have fennel too, but they seem to prefer the dill. Unlike the poison of asclepias for monarchs, you would think that the carrot family might offer some toxin for the swallowtail, but evidently not.
