Earlier this year, I recieved a few Milkweed seeds from a local insectarium. I really wanted to help Monarch butterflies out a bit. After planting and a couple months of growth, I stumbled upon a total of thirteen caterpillars nibbling away at the leaves, until only stalks of green were left. This photo shows one of the 2 week old caterpillars.
