Nikki’s two photos below show a Monarch Butterfly caterpillar.  When Nikki sent me these photos in December 2015, she stated “I believe I have some in the early 2nd instar..and some in the late 2nd instar stage.. I spotted about 3 dozen”.  The first photo below shows the caterpillar climbing up the stalk of the flower a little right of center of the photo.
