Incidental sighting as I volunteered on the grounds. The large fig trees in the Virginia Garden attracted many birds, squirrels and staff who like to harvest the ripe figs. Butterflies are attracted by the dew on the cupped leaves, basking sites and fig juice. 1st Viceroy I’ve seen all season.

Incidental sighting out the front window of butterfly laying eggs on Swamp milkweed and Tropical milkweed in the front yard. The butterfly’s antics briefly distracted a hummingbird from nectaring nearby.

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.

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.

11:00 – 16:40 EDT. Mostly sunny, 85-91 deg F, wind variable 0-5 mph. A fine field day that yielded my VA 2017-season-high single-day butterfly species count (30), good numbers of butterflies overall, and my best skipper species diversity this season, though skipper numbers were dominated by the Sachem hordes.

As a long-time north Georgia resident, I have never seen a Giant Swallow-Tail butterfly until today. It was attracted to multitude of zinnias which I grow each summer….August 24, 2017….amazing sight and more aware of human presence that typical swallow-tails I usually observe.

There had been thunderstorm activity and heavy rains for several days prior to my visit. Yet the butterfly activity seemed normal to what I typically see at this site. We found an Atala Hairstreak on the sidewalk laying on its side. I carried it back to the area with coontie plants. I found six Atala larvae on a young plant.
