I went to find some monarch caterpillars in our school's milkweed patches with no luck.  I decided to take Gabbie this weekend and search a trail near my house to see if we might have better luck there.

On our walk we found a good patch.  We didn't find caterpillars but we were able to collect 4 eggs, which is better than nothing. (I do give credit to my 4 year old for finding the first egg.  My budding entomologist!) 

These little guys are no bigger than a pin head.

Amazing, right?

We'll probably go for another search tomorrow.  I'm hoping we find a few caterpillars as well.
