Monarch Butterfly Caterpillar J4

Posted by
Bud or Dell (North Bethesda, United States) on 19 September 2019 in Animal & Insect.

I found another Monarch butterfly caterpillar beginning to form a J in preparation for transforming into a chrysalis. I will monitor this one and hope it is not snatched by a predator. It is not in a very safe spot so I may bring it inside to complete its metamorphosis.

My wife Dell has joined me on this photoblog and will be posting some of her images.
