Meet Daisy the Caterpillar

Daisy the Caterpillar

One of Zoey's friend's brought her a caterpillar today. Zoey is in heaven and considers this to be her "pet" Daisy. We've already made a run tonight for some fresh milkweed leaves for it to eat.

I have to admit too that it's mesmerizing watching it eat! I cannot believe how fast these little guys can devour a leaf that's ten times the size of their little bodies!

Zoey though is fascinated with what happens after the caterpillar has had it's fill of eating for a bit...need I say more? :)

Regardless, it will be fun to get to watch (and hopefully document) the metamorphosis of the monarch butterfly right before our very eyes.
