Munching Caterpillars

I was very excited when I saw these two caterpillars munching on our parsley plant because I thought they were monarch butterflies. But alas, I was wrong. They are black swallowtail caterpillars which makes a lot of sense since these butterflies I have seen but the monarchs were totally absent this year even with the milkweed field I let flourish and plenty of blooms to feast on.
