Found a very small Monarch Caterpillar on one of our Swamp Milkweeds. Since a number of last year's Monarchs were picked off by wasps, we were advised by a nature center to keep these ones in a box with a steady supply of milkweed until they are ready to emerge from their cocoon.

In other news, a low-pressure front has pushed the temperatures down into the 70's. Unfortunately, there's been no rain since the weekend; bad news for area lakes, already down to record levels because of the drought.
