Wordless Wednesday: Monarch Caterpillar Hatchling

Monarch Caterpillar Hatchling

Almost wordless: Monarch Butterflies visited the wildflower garden last weekend. I checked the Milkweed a few days later and found a very tiny hatchling on the underside of a leaf, about 2 or 3mm long.

    WONDERFUL photos, Leslie! I love to see these caterpillars on my milkweed plants. They start out teeny tiny, and get larger and plumper as they devour the milkweed.
