Creature Feature - Monarch butterfly
In the larval (caterpillar) stage, Monarchs only feed on milkweed. As adult butterflies they return to the milkweed for nectar and to lay eggs. Here's a sneak preview of what it will look like during the next stage of its life.
The First Friday Creature Feature happens right here on the first Friday of every month. Check back again next month to see what other creatures are lurking in the garden.
