Monarch Butterflies

This is a Monarch Butterfly caterpiller I disovered yesterday. We have seen several pairs of Monarchs in the gardens in the past week. I always wonder if they're coming back, but somehow they always find our gardens again. We plant several different 'milkweeds' in the gardens and have the wild ones growing in the fields across the road. Quite a few different butterflies call our place home, but it is always special this time of year to see that the Monarchs have returned.
