Behind the silos are many milkweed plants.  Where there’s milkweed, there are caterpillars.  Not just any caterpillars, mind you, but the progeny of the exquisitely beautiful Monarch butterfly.  Last year we were fortunate to witness the metamorphoses of six caterpillars.  Today, the children caught six more, as well as a few Tussock moth caterpillars.

Coming soon:  photos of emergent butterflies!
