The Royalty of the Dunes

A break in the steamy weather yesterday meant a great day for a hike at the Indiana Dunes.

Monarch butterflies were flitting around all over and I searched the woods and found a caterpillar munching on milkweed.

I love this caterpillar; it reminds me of striped pajamas. When I walked up to take the photos the caterpillar raised its tail at me. I'm always respectful of my subjects and try not to disturb while photographing. He was just finishing up a leaf and kept on munching.
