Thanks Jacob! Would you believe there were at least 30 of these guys on the same plant yesterday - & I couldn't find a single one today! I'll add a couple more pics from yesterday later.

Beautiful! Karen! This is definitely a Datana sp., although D. angusii is a shot into the dark. As the caterpillars age more, it might be easier to tell. If you can, could you try to keep an eye one them?
