Barred Yellow butterfly caterpillars blend well into their host plants. They lie along the vein of the leaves when they are not eating. Shy leaf, their host plant, will fold its leaves when the leaves are touched. Shy leaf grows in wild areas and empty house lots. These small yellow butterflies flitter from flower to flower, drinking nectar as they fly along.
