Photo Information Is it Love? Monarch butterfly caterpillars devouring a milkweed plant together.
Pransky, Susan: UC Master Gardener Vol.
Description This photo was taken in my garden on June 4, 2014. This is perhaps the only situation in which a gardener is happy to see something eating your plants. It caught my eye that these two caterpillars were arranged symmetrically on the plant, like synchronized nibblers. Also, they are in a quasi-heart-shaped formation. Maybe this is their version of togetherness.
