Monarch Butterfly Caterpillar(Danaus plexippus)

his monarch butterfly caterpillar was he second of only two I found all season. The monarch population has plummeted in size by 90% in the past two decades. I collect milkweed seeds two propagate monarch habitat. While collecting I check under the leaves for caterpillars or eggs. Both are alarmingly scarce.
