Captive no longer

Elvis has left the building.

I dragged myself out of the pre-Superbowl doldrums on this warm afternoon to stop by the arboretum and check on the monarch caterpillar who had grown up inside this wire cage. He was gone.

I checked all the plants that surrounded the cage, but I didn't see him. I did find an overwintered male gray bird grasshopper, and a brown monarch chrysalis that looked dead. (Probably not "Elvis").

OK. Back to the Superbowl. Gotta watch those commercials, you know.
