Monarch Caterpillar (next to dime)
Photo by Midimatt from Saukville WI
Matt Matt gave permission to post this picture on the blog and is truly an amazing picture. The monarch’s eggs hatch after 4 days and the caterpillar will consume its eggshell after being born. They will then feed on milkweed till it is ready to pupate into its chrysalis stage. Rarely do we get to see the early stages of the monarch butterfly and the dime helps to put its size into perspective! Thanks again Matt and love the photo!
