Monday, September 7—All About Caterpillars

In what has now become a routine after watering plants in the back, we checked the Butterfly Weeds for Monarch caterpillars. Several large (5+ cm) cats were observed, and there was a plethora of small (1-2 cm) ones beginning to nibble on the leaves. This is a real thrill for us!

Though it was early this morning when a butterfly check was made, only one Dun Skipper was observed.

Kay, Pam, and Martha enjoyed the new Hot Springs Village outdoor swimming pool this afternoon, and I played golf with the Monday group, doing well the front nine but collapsing on the back nine!
