I know, it's another picture of my monarch caterpillar. This little guy was chowing down about as fast as I took this picture. I was so excited because I found so many of them and the next thing I knew the bluebirds had also found them and decided they looked like tasty little morsels.
When I checked on them this evening I only saw two. But the butterfly weed was all but gone so I guess they had to seek out other food options. Luckily, I found them on another butterfly weed in my Keepsake garden.
I have also found more black swallow tail caterpillars on my parsley plant again. That's a big surprise. Isn't it a little late for this?
