Incredible Hulk

As a follow-on to last month’s Parsley Worm Infestation, we get to watch as one does his last molt right before our eyes in preparation for his big change into adulthood. We kept a couple in close proximity so that Mom could (finally) photo-capture a Black Swallowtail butterfly for the album.

Scott says he’s a super-hero gone mad.

Grrr!! Fear me! I am The Incredible Hulk!
