The ET Swallowtail was attracted to a large pink flower made of Legos before it figured out it wasn’t real, behind the main museum building. CW was in Children’s Learning Garden. VLM is hosting a Legos Sculpture exhibition on the grounds in the Conservation and Virginia gardens though Nov 22. Sightings made as I volunteered outdoors between 8:15 and 11 am or so.

Incidental sighting while looking out the 2nd story back window and gardening earlier out front. The Coral Honeysuckle out back briefly caught the attention of the sulphur. A Vanessa [either Painted or American Lady] was seen nectaring on Rudbeckia hirta in the back, but from the 2nd floor could not tell which Lady. Two Monarch caterpillars [3rd & 4th instars] were found and reported to Journey North in the front yard earlier in the day.
