What is this?
Hi all, I was looking at my garden today and noticed these things on my variegated dogwood. I have no idea what they are. I suspect maybe wasps, but seriously don't know. I realize they are probably not butterflies, but I figured I'd ask here anyway as I'm sure those interested in butterflies probably pay attention to other insects in their gardens. I want to just pluck them off and throw them away if they are wasps, but would not want to remove them if they are a beneficial insect or a butterfly. Thank so much for looking. :)
