Monarch caterpillars!

At my home, I found a couple of Monarch caterpillars on common milkweed. I have seen several adults flying around, but these are the first larvae that I have been able to find this year.

i've been raising monarchs from eggs to butterfly for the past 4 years, and the excitement is always the same when finding and releasing them :]
