Eastern black swallowtail caterpillar I found on Golden alexander (Zizia aurea) last month. I found way more cats on the non-native dill this year but I would have run out of food if I did not have all the Golden Alexander available.

Good point; one I always try to cover when I talk to people about host plants for the black swallowtail. That end of the season brood is really important for the continuation of the population into next year. Dill often disappears before that last brood reaches the pupa stage.
