Young Monarch Caterpillar

This is a 1st instar monarch caterpillar. I've been bringing them indoors for added protection. They have a 90% survival rate this way, but only a 10% survival rate if left outdoors. Their populations are in major decline due mostly to habitat destruction, and the use of chemicals.

"My work is loving the world. Here the sunflowers, there the hummingbird — equal seekers of sweetness. Here the clam deep in the speckled sand. Are my boots old? Is my coat torn? Am I no longer young, and still not half-perfect? Let me keep my mind on what matters, which is my work which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished." — Mary Oliver, from Messenger

Cheryl, great banner!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
