That one is lovely too, for sure! I've seen 1 only once before, when I was working at the Emiquon TNC site. I think it looks like bird poop

And I LOVE your Queen of the Prairie shots. I'd be pleased as punch if they took over where I planted them... heh heh

Thanks. I've been meaning to post that in my "Is There an Entomologist in the House?" thread...I'd like to know what it is.

This is the first time I've seen...and it was in our yard!

That is a great defense strategy. I've seen some caterpillars that use that as well.

I'd love it if my queen of the prairie would take over as well! I'm so glad I bought it this year.
