Temp’s around 70 in AM with PM intermittent showers and clouds. Observation mid morning when still just cloudy. Easily saw 5 species caterpillars. Found several American Snout chrysalis on a hackberry sapling given to me by Pat Sutton last fall. They are very small perhaps 1/4” long and 1/8” to slightly wider. Several Cloudless Sulphur chrysalis on Partridge Pea. It’s a good year here for both AS and CS.
