Ulysses' begining

The egg of a Ulysses butterfly (Papilio ulysses)
I'm not sure when I planted my pink flowered doughwood (Melicope elleryana), perhaps two years ago. It has grown vigorously, and I've pruned it back to around two and a half metres height a couple of times. It was planted to attract the Ulysses blue butterfly to the garden, and it seems that it's now at the stage it's attractive to the butterflies. I'm yet to see any caterpillars, but a few eggs have been deposited in recent days.
