Observation notes: Found on a pot of cardinal flowers in bloom, has morning sun and dappled sun in the evening. First noticed two caterpillars, one appears to be building its cocoon in the picture. Went back a few days later and found 12 webbed cocoons (is that what they are called?) We started watching them and this morning (9/1/19) found a moth drying itself. Also found two more smaller caterpillars.
