The very hungry caterpillar

About two weeks ago, I had a local company, Fluttering Flowers, put in a butterfly garden at my classroom. It turned out just beautifully and is filled with a wonderful variety of colorful flowers. I thought it would be great fun for the children to enjoy some butterflies and caterpillars as they come to class each week. On Monday, I found this chubby fellow munching away on milk weed. A few plants over was a brother or sister, who was also making himself quite at home. Judging from their size, I would guess they will be getting ready for a chrysalis soon!
