red-spotted purple BF - what over ripe fruit works best?
Is there a concensus for best fruits to use at a feeding station to attract Red Spotted Purple BF's.
And should the fruit be squishy before putting it out? I have my netted onion bag and a wrought iron in ground hanger ready, just need to prepare a fine dining experience for those little jewels who like to feed off of spoiled fruit!
The only time I've actually seen a Red Spotted Purple was when I put a piece of melon on the deck railing, thinking the birds might like a taste. Instead, this lovely BF hung around, feeding on it. Miss Sherry ID'ed it and told me what kind of butterfly I was seeing!
Congrats on seeing your first Red Spotted Purple this season, Sherry.
