I was out in Joshua Tree National Park with some pals for the Orionid Meteor Shower. We were hoping to capture some meteors in pixels. It's a hit and miss proposition - lots of frames, not many meteors..
When I got home - what do you know? I had a full color Orionid in Orion!

When you plant milkweed as Janet did in the spring, you may find caterpillars, as Janet did this morning.
We counted five striped slinkies munching on milkweed this morning and they seem to match the pictures on the Monarch website.
We should have looked for eggs (as Douglass would). But now we'll keep an eye out for chrysalises.
This fellow has on a different uniform. Maybe it has not yet grown into the more vivid stripes.
