Hungry Caterpillars

If you hike outside this weekend be on the lookout for all the hungry caterpillars.

Besides finding monarch caterpillars munching on milkweed plants, you just might find a Buckeye caterpillar munching on just about anything. 

Buckeye caterpillars are all dressed up for an early Halloween in black and orange with a little bit of white thrown in. Buckeyes, both butterflies and larva, seem to be particularly abundant this year, so you are bound to see them when you get out on this gorgeous holiday weekend.
