Subject: ETS

Yesterday, Oct 5th, I saw a very worn, faded rag-tag male ETS, with the =
left hind wing missing. I also saw what appeared to be a freshly =
eclosed male, beautiful bright colors, but with half the hind wing and =
half the forewing missing - a marked large V shaped part of the forewing =
missing. =20

I also rescued 14 5th instar, and one 4th instar black swallowtail =
caterpillars on what was left of the bronze fennel. There is a fissure =
in one chrysalis, and another with an incomplete pupation. Don=E2=80=99t =
know how it will affect the butterfly.

Saw 2 monarchs yesterday
