Summer here in New Zealand and Monarch Butterflies and Caterpillars are out in force.
My wife and I brought some Swan Plants with Caterpillars at the local Graden Centre, and have the plants set up in the lounge for the Caterpillars to grow in safety (and photograph). They are fascinating to watch, all they do is eat and poo, stop to sleep, wake up and start all over again, and they grow big and fat fast.
Thanks for looking
