Hanging out on Senna bicapsularis, a good place to hunt for prey since, although the plant doesn't bloom until fall, it is host to sulphur family caterpillars, and also seems to exude a sweet substance through glands on the stems, which attracts many insects. The pale grey color of this creature caught my attention from halfway across the back yard.
