I checked the milkweed that we had planted for the Monarch butterflies and found this Monarch butterfly caterpillar munching away. It looks to be a 4th instar which means it will be forming a chrysalis soon (see yesterday's post). This is so exciting for us as it has taken many years to finally attract some Monarch butterflies to our milkweed patch. Enjoy!
