Dinner guests

This little guy and his buddy (below), along with all of their relatives and friends and relatives' friends, have been having a veritable smorgasbord (orgasbord, orgasbord) in my front yard all day. Oh, well. At least they're cute.

I believe these are monarch butterflies-to-be in their larval stage. Quite striking little fellows.

  6. Oh! Yes, Monarchs! Watch for the chrysalids... gorgeous jadeite green with metallic gold dots. When they are ready to emerge the chrysalis turns clear. Beautiful photos!
