Butterfly Tales…

Ok, this is to all you folk I saw post about raising butterflies a couple months back. Today I found this beauty on my dill! I was so excited, I'm pretty sure it's a black swallowtail. So now my question is, what should I do? Just let it be? can I take it in and watch it grow and change? If so, how does one go about that? Food? Water? Habitat? Supplies? I've never kept and insect as a "pet" before. But I've read some of your posts on raising caterpillars till they turn and it's something I'd love to try. I tried google and found lots of info on the little guy itself but nothing on raising them. EDIT: My google fu finally kicked in. Instead of searching "raising black swallowtails" I just looked for "raising butterflies" and found the butterfly school. That's a good start but I'd still love to hear some personal experiences and tips!
