Caterpillar on Hemp AgrimonyHemp Agrimony providing sustenance for one of our Swallowtail caterpillars

From years of observing our local colonies of Papilio machaon britannicis, in all their life stages, it is amazing that we are watching one caterpillar this summer of 2014, who is consuming Hemp Agrimony AND thriving. I have seen a caterpillar previously who decided to feed on Wild Angelica but it didn't survive. It has been a great summer for flora so it isn't due to a shortage of its regular food source - Milk Parsley. Quite remarkable!Swallowtail Caterpillar eating Hemp AgrimonySwallowtail Caterpillar eating Hemp Agrimony
