It's a Twofer

The caterpillar situation has remained stable all day. So I guess the answer to one question is: As they get larger, they don't change instars as quickly.

Here's what I found this morning. A lot fewer caterpillars, all on the back of the large upper leaf.

And now there are two of the 4th instar- the very small orange and black caterpillar.

It was the same at lunch, and the same this evening.

I went for a hike with some friends today. More about that on Sunday. You'll know why, then.

This series has prompted me to examine the milkweed that grows in our basement walkout garden. There are no signs of fauna in the flora.
