Wildlife - Black swallowtail caterpillars

These are black swallowtail caterpillars that were on my parsley at the end of last year. I had over 60 in all and kept them alive through a cold snap with a box and light over the plants. I really enjoyed watching the female lay the eggs, then the caterpillars hatch and grow and then disappear to winter over as chrysalis.
