Not sure if some of you saw this cartoon--eggs are slowing down, only found 4 on Monday. But I also have a collection of 5 black swallowtail cats and 3 cecropia. (Finding the cecropia really got me excited)

You found 3 cecropia caterpillars? That's amazing! I haven't seen one in the wild since 2005.
I found 3 monarch eggs yesterday. I hope we have a warm September because I have a lot of butterflies that will emerge in the next four weeks.
Thanks for posting the cartoon. Have you raised a lot of monarchs this year?

I have just had 5 black swallowtails pupate and I hoping next spring that they are successful. Wish I could find more. I think I found some Baltimore Checkered cats on some turtleheads, so I'm excited about that.

That's awesome. I have sowed much seed of turtlehead and only have one plant. How exciting for you.
