I made 2 discoveries recently when I walked in from Floral Walk. I seldom walk in from that direction because I usually come in through Pasir Panjang Road.
  1. The first being that the Autumn Leaf caterpillars feed on the leaves of the yellow flower Ruttya fruticosa that I planted out at Floral Walk.
  2. I finally spotted the earlier instars of the caterpillars. Frankly, I have never seen it before with my own eyes.
One of the ways to find caterpillars is to look out for its frass.

Ok, I admit that these were not earth-shattering discoveries. But they were part of my learning journey on butterflies.
