Several males pursued this female... but she wasn't having it. A better look shows that perhaps she's past needing to mate.

Female found in my yard. Wasn't too happy that I pulled out the cape smilax she was hiding in.

Half a dozen insects--I include shots of 4-- circling a nice old passion vine. I'm guessing the second image is of a female( said to be paler), the first and third are males.

Found no larvae; but I'll be back to check.
