Monarch Caterpillars

Exploring the milkweed...
Lots of monarch caterpillars nibbling...
Ahhh the beauty of evolution... allowing this zebra striped caterpillar to consume the poisonous milky white juices of the milkweed plant causing the toxins to ooze through its squishy body and keep predators at bay!
