Not growing, eggs are showing up on wife's parsley, not sure if they were on the plant when she bought them or  were laid on plant after we brought home. She had a butterfly raising kit  from a project she did with the local Environmental Club and decided to try and watch them grow and change to butterfly. Have had the caterpillars on plants in the past, but didn't have a kit, so Mother Nature took it's course (caterpillars were probably eaten by birds). These last 2 that I posted should be ready to  morph in another week or so

Not sure what this is but there's plenty of them buzzing around my milkweed along with the bumble bees, mason bees, honey bees, and a few other unidentified species.

This moth appeared on the front of my house. It's huge, 1 1/2" × 2 1/2". That coloration beats any Realtree pattern I've ever seen.
