Monarch Butterfly Caterpillar

By FeatherFriend
I was going to do a close up on this one but on looking at the surrounding area I decided it would better on this occasion to include the habitat, not sure what species it is but hope someone can identify it for me.

Many thanks for the votes and comments on the previous image and a special thank you to MikeRC for the UA,

It's the caterpillar of the Monarch Butterfly - one of the few times that the caterpillar is as beautiful as the adult! Smile Well caught!

Love the colours, clarity and composition Geoff. I thought this one must have been taken at the Butterfly Farm, if it was down on Dartmoor I'm sure the Big O would have been on here telling us that he'd made an exciting new discovery!WinkGrin
