Monarch caterpillars

The last of the caterpillars are hatching, and that will be the end of the season for this year. I was happy to see many more caterpillars than the last few years.

In the close up of the caterpillar head, you can see the semicircular arrangement of its eyes, six eyes on each side, shiny black dots on one of the black bands.
