Monarch caterpillar report


Apparently, we have them at the arboretum.



I found a number of caterpillars in the big milkweed patch at the west end of the arboretum.



I felt a momentary rush of excitement when I came upon what looked like metamorphosis in progress. Sadly, something had gone wrong. The caterpillar/pupa was dead.



But there is still a whole season ahead of us.
