Monarch caterpillar (explored)

Flickr Explore #70 (highest position) - December 24, 2009

 

A Monarch caterpillar munching on milkweed, spotted last Sunday (Dec. 20) at South Coast Botanic Garden. This is a perfect example of my "always look behind you" habit: I was checking out some yellow hibiscus blooms, turned around and was thrilled to see this little creature feasting on the last of a milkweed plant.
