Munching Monarch Caterpillar

The last few days have been really hot & we've had heavy rain every afternoon ... overnight my yard has become filled with lizards & butterflies. This monarch caterpillar is almost ready to find a place to attach itself & and transform into a  pupa/chrysalis. The monarch's chrysalis is a beautiful shade of green with a spiral of tiny gold dots along its length. Hopefully, I'll find a few so I can post pictures of them & the new butterflies. Happy summer!!


  1. That monarch may end up here in the Morro Bay area or at least central coast California. Nice capture of a scene.

  2. You will definitely get migrating monarchs from northern California if you're far enough south in the fall. California is the perfect place to live.
