    I saw these guys munching on some flowers. I think they turn into swallowtail butterflies.

    There's a tunnel at the end of the light...

    Nice pic Dyflam!!!!!!!!!!

    That is not the monarch caterpillar. Monarch larvae ONLY eat milkweed. It is a Queen larvae. (I was a butterfly freak when i was young) I raised 16 monarchs and let them all go successfully. I still do it when I find a load of larvae I take them into my care and I help the monarch populaiton come back up from what it is now.
