    They're beautiful even before they're butterflies, aren't they?! I believe that milkweed is the only plant they will use for laying eggs and for feeding the young. How good of you to provide that habitat! Do you see a lot of butterflies later in the season?

    Hello! This is a monarch caterpillar. They LOVE my milkweed.

    I love your picture. Which kind of caterpillar is that?
