Hi,
I've thought for a long time that the easiest MA butterfly caterpillar
to find, in season, was the American Lady. Even from a hundred feet away,
their nests in the tops of Sweet Everlastings are easily visible. And now,
in the summer of 2019, I find that I have not seen a single Sweet
Everlasting plant anywhere in eastern Massachusetts. This is remarkable, as
normally I will see hundreds or thousands of them. The single small clump
of Pearly Everlasting I saw in Norton had several American Lady larval
nests. Pearly Everlasting is typically very scarce in s.e. MA but where oh
where are the Sweet Everlastings?
