Very First Monarch Caterpillar Ever Seen (and Other Milkweed Community Members)6/25/14

Flashback Monday, June 25, 2012 – This is a little leafhopper on a sunflower leaf and it was incredibly tiny and I feel very grateful to have gotten this clear photo with all the wind. The bright colors are amazing and this is my pick photo for today.

June 25, 2013 sigWednesday, June 25, 2014 – Today was a red letter day and we saw the very first Monarch butterfly caterpillar ever in our milkweed.  We believe we’ve had others we’ve just never seen them.  So we are doing a happy dance 🙂  The other photos also feature milkweed community members.  You’ll have to look carefully at one of the photos to see the white spider.
