100 Things that make me smile

I had a mystery the other day. My students and I found some strange caterpillars on the milkweed. They looked a lot like the monarch caterpillar but not. Today I saw the possible parents of the caterpillars - Queen Butterflies. They are very similar to the monarch but smaller and have white spots instead of black veins. The queen caterpillars likes milkweed, too.

It's not one I see a lot either. It mimics the monarch with its bright red color and spots so that birds think it tastes bad like the monarch. The caterpillar is very similar in appearance, too.
