Sighting for September 12, 2021

Beth Polvino

my yard NABA #1151 & Monarch Waystation #8318
Cape May County, NJ

Was excited to watch and video the metamorphosis of a Sleepy Orange caterpillar to a chrysalis. Pure chance I was there at the right time. First Pipevine Swallowtail here since 2018. Didn't realize what it was until reviewing pictures tonight.
[What an excellent day for Beth! It is great to have another pipevine report from CMY and the experience of watching the sleepy sulphur transition must have been awesome. -jm]
