The monarch is one of the best known butterfly species. I spotted this chubby caterpillar head-down happily feeding away on leaves of Fewflower milkweed (Asclepias lanceolata) in a butterfly garden.
In North America, the monarch ranges from southern Canada to northern South America - and is famous for its mass migrations. Although native to North and South America, it has expanded its distribution to Australia, many Pacific islands, and a few places in Europe.
Spotted on in a backyard flower garden in Kennesaw, GA.
