In the garden..

There's something lurking on my Dill, in my garden..
It's fifteen little Swallowtail Caterpillars!
Over the past week and a half, I have been watching these little guys, they started down low in the Dill, and started moving their way to the top.
They were so little at first, then as the days went by, they started getting chubby, just eating away at the tasty Dill.
This morning, I walked out to visit the garden and noticed that all but three have left.. I wonder where they went. I hope birds didn't get them. There are three left, two are already in cocoons, and one is in the process.
It is such a gift to see these little Caterpillars, I'm so blessed they ended up in my garden!
It would be so nice, if I could see them turn into beautiful Butterflies!
But until then, I will just have to keep an eye on them, and a camera close by!
