    Cool caterpillar.

    Did you slaughter the slug?

    I believe that's a monarch caterpillar!

    The sunset WAS amazing tonight. It was as though the sky was on fire.

    There were more Monarch butterflies when we were kids. I remember seeing fields of them (and that was waaaay up north ) Spotting one now is a rare occasion

    Speaking of occasions...Looking forward to tonights ride. It will be in celebration of a very special event

    Both play it's part,
    Is it not late for a Caterpillar stage?
    We have seen lots of Monarchs up here this year. Has it not been a normal year?

    Tasty, but you shouldn't eat so many or frequently. Apparently they're really high in some chemicals that can harm or are suspect to.

    Sadly, as the GTA and surrounding area develops, the fields where the monarchs and their caterpillars feed are shrinking. No milkweed, no caterpillars.

    Perhaps monarchs are weather forecasters? Late caterpillars might bode well for a longer summer and fall.
