I just love them. I always plant untreated ( even though I only use organic) plants just for them.

Sounds like a rather lopsided encounter to me with the butterfly being on the short end of the stick.

Top photo is more then likely an Admiral. Been seing a lot of them this year.
The second one is a Black Swallowtail! They love laying eggs on dillweed, but will lay on parsley if dill is scarce.
