A Good Day

Today, out in the field, we saw a number of large milkweeds. I also, for the first time, saw a monarch caterpillar in person and it was larger than expected. I also saw pods for the first time while monitoring and nearby some bugs were mating.

I managed to spot a butterfly among the leaves. Luckily I did see it because it was nearly crushed under my foot. Unfortunately, it was not a Monarch butterfly but it was fascinating regardless to see it up so close.

 

The caterpillar had just shed and you could see right behind it is the leftovers.

It was an amazing day.
