Red Spotted Purple sighting

Saw a Red Spotted Purple from a distance near the house, it didn't come close to the garden though. Still lots of Painted Ladies and skippers. The Question Marks and Commas are still visiting too. Giant Swallowtail caterpillars are doing fine - 4 cm long now! - as are the Spicebush Swallowtail caterpillars. Last instar Giant Swallowtail almost ready to pupate. I saw two Preying mantis' mating this morning and got one picture. They stopped, and the male was just fine and got away.
