Beginnings of a Monarch
Caterpillar from the Monarch Butterfly on Milkweed (Crown flower). While Monarch Butterflies in the Continental U.S. migrate, in Hawaii they have a wonderful time breeding and feasting on Crown flower all year round. This striped beauty will soon become a full fledged monarch, being just about ready to go into the chrysallis phase.
