My daughter was at the house late (past midnight) and as she was leaving, spied a caterpillar on the milkweed in the flower bed at the front porch (see the post for 9/12 just below this one). I couldn't see well because I didn't have my glasses on and the only light source was from the front porch light. It appeared to be a monarch caterpillar. I just checked it out on Google and, yep, that's what it is. I'm excited! I just hope it's still there in the morning so that I can try to get a photo. Here are a few links (hope they work).
