And I don't mean the Kansas Board of Education,but rather monarch larvae on my milkweed. I only have seen two so far, but for a big striped insect they are pretty hard to spot. This one and a smaller one are in my front garden on butterfly plant. I have some swamp milkweed in the back and while monarchs are visiting the plants, there do not seem to have any larvae.
Notice all the aphids. I wonder if the monarch larvae get a little protein boost.
