South Jersey Butterfly Project
my yard NABA #1151 & Monarch Waystation #8318
Cape May County, NJ
Sad to see the butterfly season ending. Still nectar in the garden with lantana & zinnias. Cleanup today of some of the cannas. I found 1 large Brazilian cat creating a nest perhaps getting to to pupate plus 4 Brazilian Skipper Chrysalises. All look viable. 14 monarch cats mostly last instars and a few Black Swallowtail cats on host plants. Black Swallowtail (2), Spicebush Swallowtail (3), Question Mark (2), Monarch (1) and Brazilian Skipper (4) chrysalises here. Was surprised to have a Fiery Skipper hang around all afternoon.
