Cocoon 0

After the stripping the milkweed plant bare, the Monarch caterpillars settle down for a nap. This one chose the milkweed pot itself.

The milkweeds themselves are amazing. The caterpillars pick them bare–when they have eaten all the leaves, they start start eating the stems–and leaves come right back to feed the next brood.

A Plague of Brocusts 0

"Lime" scooters left carelessly about the parking lot of a local shopping center.

And this was just a few of the two-wheeled hazards we saw on the two mile trip to the grocery store. There were others in that same parking lot, as well as some left in the middle of a sidewalk in front of the local thrift store.
