I have been searching since Sunday evening for the missing monarch caterpillar to see where he/she went to get into the chrysalis. My hubby thought perhaps a bird got it, but I read that they avoid monarchs because of the black/white and yellow stripes of the caterpillar tells them it is poison to them or at least NOT tasty!!
So today I was out planting some impatients in my hanging pots and I spotted it attached to one of my pot holders. It is situated so that the sun will hit it, but it protected by the overhang porch at my front door. Very smart indeed!!
This is very fascinating I think. Hope you do too!!
