The milkweed plant (Asclepias syriaca) is kinda ugly, and although the flowers smell sweet, it gets this weird seed pod later in its life. Plus it likes to grow right in the middle of beautifully cultivated flowerbeds and vegetable gardens. — But this plant is vital to the continued existence of the Monarch Butterfly. Although the adults will feed on various types of flowers, the caterpillars can only eat milkweed leaves. And they love them! They will strip a plant of its leaves in just a few days, growing from barely visible specks the width of your fingernails to the big fat creatures you see exemplified in this photograph. — So put up with these tall, out-of-place plants throughout the year if you want your August to be filled with captivating caterpillars and magnificent monarchs! — #caterpillar #monarchcaterpillar #monarchbutterfly #milkweed #plants #butterfly #nature #insect #naturephotography
