About two years ago at the local markets I bought this little straggly tree/bush and the lady said that it would host Ulysses butterflies. I have moved it around a few times and it is still a very straggly tree/ bush... but.......
we were sitting on the swing enjoying a avocado sandwich when I suddenly looked at a spot on the straggly tree/bush. Wow! that is exactly what a Ulysses butterfly caterpillar looks like - big smile - I rushed to get the camera.
This one seems to be gathering the leaves together and there is some sort of web on the leaves.
Oh now this plant is paying its way!
