After years of chasing, standing in the sun and waiting, this year I vowed to stop trying to get photos of butterflies.
... and this Spicebush Swallowtail. We're also seeing Tiger Swallowtails and Pipevine Swallowtails.
I found a dozen little Tersa Sphinx Moth caterpillars on one little Pentas plant in the greenhouse. One had gone into a brown colored instar and was hiding on the back of a sole remaining leaf. They devoured the whole plant while I was not looking. No Pentas outdoors are hosting larvae that I found.
Agalinis plants are plentiful in the meadows and will bloom next month. Buckeyes are out there but they'll be more plentiful in September, laying eggs on False Foxgloves and nectaring on the pink blossoms.
I'm excited to be reminded of the meme Butterfly Bucket List at The Transmutational Garden.
