On a walk along the Red Cedar Trail we found a number of interesting insects including the first ever Black Swallowtail Caterpillar.

Lots of insects around the farm in late summer. It won’t be long and they will all be gone. The Wooly Bear Caterpillars are all over the place now. I thought I had seen the last of the Monarch Caterpillars several weeks ago but this one turned up a couple of days ago. I doubt he will make it.

With all of the Monarch Caterpillars that I found I expected to see a lot of Monarch Butterflies. That hasn’t been the case. They have been few and far between.
