Garden Babies

A friend has been posting pictures of her garden insect discoveries including her first caterpillars. So last evening I decided to go investigate my milkweed and dill.

I found four babies of two different types, three monarchs and one swallowtail.

Of course, this morning, I could only find the swallowtail again munching on the dill. More babies will be on the way as several of my dill clusters have egg globs on them.

While baby spiders may not inspire the cute factor for me outside of Charlotte’s Web, this little orb weaver  was already glowing with color.

Given the “cat” in caterpillar, this still qualifies as a Caturday post. 😉
