Return of the Monarchs
Last year, I put together a butterfly garden and learned the benefits of milkweed and the horrible nature of wasps. So, this year, I started my milkweed plants earlier this year. After a long day at work, I arrived home and found two of my plants absolutely covered with Monarch Caterpillars. I could watch the caterpillars forever; they are so determined and so hungry.
I took my camera out and shot a few photos of the Monarch Caterpillars, Milkweed Bugs, and a Green Lynx Spider hanging out on the milkweed. I’m really gunning for a good macro lens these days; that macro extender just isn’t cutting it anymore. Everyone seems to love the initial excited photo from my phone the best.
Also, I caught this quick video of one of the caterpillars eating away at the milkweed leaves.
