Cape May County, NJ
Today, I found 3 Common Buckeye caterpillars on the snapdragons which tolerate the cold we've been having. This caterpillar, after watching it feed a while has left and is on walkabout. I also had a moth caterpillar on another plant. Continuing are Black (2) and Spicebush Swallowtail (5) chrysalis. Sunny, 64 with winds 6 MPH.
[The black and spicebush swallowtail caterpillars give us 11 species "in action" on 11-26-19. Nine adult species and two seen as larvae (common buckeye active in both adult and caterpillar stages). jc]
