The Butterfly House is a wonderful place to visit.  I can't wait for the Christmas display in their conservatory and of course the butterflies.

I took these photos at Reiman Gardens in Ames, IA a couple of weeks ago.   I love ornamental peppers, the second photo is Black Pearl, I am going to try to find seeds of it for next season.

Camera Critter Saturday-Black Swallowtail Caterpillars




Posted by Picasa

I took these a few weeks back hoping to have a photo of the butterfly to go with them, but no such luck, I must have been at work or another place when they came out of their cocoons :(.  I only saw one Black Swallowtail butterfly in my yard this year and by the time I got my camera she was gone.  They are probably my favorite butterfly as they were one of the 1st ones I was able to lure into my yard years ago with fennel.
