Sunday Stills


The theme for this weeks Sunday Still is
Yellow
Late last August, I noticed the flowers on my Flowering Senna tree were disappearing. Upon closer inspection, I found that at least 20 of these caterpillars were happily munching away.
My butterfly ID book was my next stop. In 8 years of living here, I'd never seen these cats on this tree. Turns out they were Cloudless Sulphur butterfly cats.

Twelve days later, I was rewarded with their birthday pictures.
