"Man, Lynn, can a caterpillar be more boring?"

"I've been watching this one all day, and it only moves it's
head back and forth as it eats. I'm not even that hungry or
food greedy, mostly."

"Give me a butterfly to watch any time!"

Not a good year for butterflies here.  I only had 6 that have
stayed alive and turned into chrysalis. So far 2 of those have
flown and I am keeping an eye on the other 4.  Last year
I had 28 fly.  The Monarchs did better than the Swallowtails.
I have had a couple dozen Monarchs fly off this year out of
my flower beds.

Oh you are a funny wee thing Precious. That first photo is adorable. I have just last week planted two more swan plants amongst my flowers as the last lot seemed to all get eaten off. I think the paper wasps that we get here can eat the crysalis's.

I wonder what the problem was for butterflies this year. I didn't see as many here as usual, either.
