Description

A couple of House Sparrows used our deck as a dining table for dismantling & eating Cicadas. Maybe an hours worth of feeding resulting in a pile of wings of which this is a small sample. I'm surprised the Sparrows could fly off at the end.

Floral arrangement by me - not the Sparrows

We had about 40 caterpillars on this plant a few months ago and now have a second wave of caterpillars on it.

Will they manage to pupate before it gets to cold (or they defoliate the swan plant again)?
