Yesterday I bailed from work before lunch because I wasn’t feeling well. At some point I knew I wasn’t going to be able to power through it and hope I’d feel better. I came home and spent a few hours watching tv, taking a nap, and slurping some soup. Around 3pm I walked outside for a few minutes to get some fresh air and to enjoy the sun; it was far too nice of a day to be cooped up inside as I had been. I grabbed my camera and decided to go for a walk around the garden for a few minutes. I was almost done and heading back to the monarch tent went I stopped to admire the Senna corymbosa. The flowers were slowly fading and seedpods had begun forming. And then my eye caught something I hadn’t seen out there before—a new caterpillar for the garden! I went inside and flipped through my caterpillar book. I hadn’t really studied the caterpillar but I had narrowed it down to a cloudless sulphur or an orange barred sulphur. Once I opened my photos up to look a little closer and compare to Google Images it was evident it was a cloudless sulphur! I had been noticing a lot more sulphurs around here but I never really identify which ones because they are such flightly butterflies and don’t sit still long enough for one to really inspect them. I’m glad to know that they have decided to start using my senna to start laying eggs! Since I wasn’t feeling well I didn’t really inspect the entire plant to see if there were more but I suspect there may be! Now I will be paying attention to see if I can find when it decides to pupate!
