Yard Critter of the Week - American Lady Caterpillar

American Lady Caterpillar.

Patty found several in our front garden.

There are two in the image below. And Patty counted seven on what's left of this Pearly Everlasting plant. The plant, obviously a host plant for the caterpillar, did not appear to like the spot where we planted it.

But the caterpillars didn't seem to mind as they munched away.

Our worry is that there won't be enough food for them all. Our fingers are crossed that we'll have butterflies flittering through the garden later this summer. Here's hoping.
