There is nothing this boy is afraid of touching. If I see a garden pest and am...well...nervous about it...I'll call Riley, my exterminator, over and he'll gladly pick the bug off of my plants and dispose of it.

This was one cool caterpillar. BUT, even beautiful-looking bugs must get off of my carrots.

Wonder what kind of butterfly this one will make? Does anyone know?

I think that's a monarch caterpillar, but I can't say for sure. It looks similar, at least.
Way to go, Riley!

Riley is my hero! What a delight he is. Give both boys (ok, give ALL the boys) a big hug for me. Miss you, but you are so good at the blog I feel as though we're still on the ranch.

It looks a lot like a monarch caterpillar, but not exactly. Kind of looks like a swallowtail, I think. (Yes, I'm far behind & just catching up on your blog! :) )
