    A meet-the-neighbours gathering on a Swan Plant milkweed.

    A few hours after this photo was taken the Monarch caterpillar had suspended itself on a cushion of silk in preparation for pupation (next photo in my stream).

      How wonderful, I would love to encounter one of these myself! But yes, only if I'm not one of those smaller bugs :)
