looked what popped up in our butterfly garden !!

We planted dill & fennel in between the butterfly bushes and roses weeks ago, hoping to attract Black swallowtail caterpillars. Yesterday it finally paid off when this lone guy popped up! So swallowtails have been visiting without our notice. I wonder if he's the only one, the last, or the first? I've never seen a Black swallowtail cat before.
