Here is a close-up of todays visitor to my balcony. Since I posted this earlier, I have identified it…the caterpillars like to feed on nettle and ironically, the night before sighting this lovely on the dog walk, I had mistaken some nettle for mint and grabbed a piece…ouch! 🙂 Apparently nettle, Urtica is an excellent herbal remedy – chk this link here for more info.
In addition there was another visitor yesterday of a different color but alas, my camera was nowhere to be found.
