Home AKA Monarch Waystation #271
Newport News city, VA

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.
