Thanks. Anybody interested?
Otherwise, will remove them...the small rue plant cannot satisfy their appetite.

One small caterpillar I saw yesterday. It likes to build nest in between leaves using silk. Growing on Asystasia gangetica plant. Maybe it is one of those totally brown colour medium size butterflies. Not very colourful ones.

Punggol area got one type of butterfly, which is brown with blue colour, that type nicer patterns.
