Presents in the Air

Today was so special.  I just came home from the grocery store and noticed two Gulf Fritillaries in the butterfly garden.  Lo and behold they were laying eggs on the passion vine.  Glory!  The plants out there are new this year so I didn't think they would come.  All my butterfly friends on FB are reporting all kinds of cool caterpillars on their vines and mine had none so I thought they had passed me by.
Then the magical moment came and I just happened to be there when they were laying the eggs.  This egg was delivered by the butterfly less than an hour before I got this picture.
So tomorrow before hurricane Florence makes its way to our area I am going to go out there and pick off as many eggs as I can find.

And Vinney will be helping me.
