Look at this magnificent Giant Swallowtail laying eggs on my orange jasmine (murraya paniculata.) I did not know that this particular plant was a host for these butterflies, but there are eggs all on the plant. Kudos to my daughter, Rhonda, for taking this wonderful picture to send to me offshore. Our plan to attract loads of butterflies to our yard this year has worked out perfectly. I've never seen so many butterflies in all my life. Sure makes all the work and research to attract butterflies worthwhile.
