Although it's been a poor year for adult butterflies, we're seeing a good crop of the young'uns. Plenty of caterpillars this year should mean plenty of butterflies next year. Here's a Tiger Swallowtail caterpillar, just about ready to form its chrysalis. Those eye-like spots and orange fuzzy "tongues" are part of their design for surprising predators.

Super variety, well documented, as usual. I especially like the head-on shot of the clearwing.
