|Description||This photo was taken in my backyard where I have a small butterfly garden with both tropical milkweed and native milkweed. Following guidelines from butterfly experts, I cut the tropical milkweed back each November. I noticed these two caterpillars on the same stem. Were they sharing or competing? My milkweed is also home to aphids, milkweed bugs, pollinators, and of course, Monarch butterflies.|
