By August 22 the caterpillars had grown a lot. In the morning, they looked like this. By evening, they had disappeared. I'm hoping the birds didn't get them.

The black swallowtail butterfly caterpillars have at least doubled in size in 48 hours. It makes me laugh when they put up their little orange "horns" to try and scare me away. It's hard to capture that in a photo, though, because they stay up for only a few seconds and by the time I focus, the "horns" are gone.
