Parsley Worms

In all my years of gardening and growing things I've never heard of or seen a Parsley Worm,that is until 4 days ago.Four of them took up home in my parsley.

Fascinating creatures to watch,I literally could hear these eat my parsley.The color contrast is quite stunning for a catepillar.

As of last night they were still in the garden but when I got home from work they was only one.I'm assuming the other three have formed a chrysalis and we'll become black swallow tail butterflies in a week or so or overwinter and wait for the Spring.Would love to watch this but can't find the cacoons.
