Day One

Today I transferred a couple of fritillary caterpillars from the container of leaves to our larger established passionflower vine. Later, while I was showing James the kiddos, a Gulf fritillary butterfly came flitting by and deposited eggs while we watched! Here's one (above). I'm going to try and photograph this egg about the same time each day: 4 to 5 p.m.

Below is a fritillary caterpillar, already munching away on the same vine.

UPDATE May 20, 2010–Alas, the little egg disappeared by the next day. So that little photo project ended.

My Passion vine also has eggs and caterpillars! I also noticed a black swallowtail on my dill. I wish they could let it grow a bit bigger first!
