Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, the latest crop of monarch caterpillars in My Florida Backyard have wriggled their way into shimmering green chrysalises, after eating every single leaf of milkweed available. (Seriously, the plants are completely stripped!) They've chosen all kinds of odd places, including three of them on this fennel plant. Can you spot them all?
Nature creates the most ridiculously beautiful things, don't you think?
Happy St. Patrick's Day - don't forget to follow the monarchs' example of the Wearing of the Green!
