The Wanderer

 
Don't you love this stripey caterpillar?
I found a bunch of them on a cotton bush growing by the local roadside recently.
The caterpillar will eventually turn into the 'wanderer' or 'monarch' butterfly.


 This is what the cotton bush (food source) looks like. Children often play with the seed pods.
So keep your eyes out, you may just see a wanderer fly past.....
 
Cheerio for now,

I do love that caterpillar and the monarch butterfly. I always enjoy seeing the chrysalis when I was younger. Have a lovely week Sandi. x
