Monarch Caterpillar and Butterfly

In the late summer, I enjoy getting out to photograph butterflies. This morning, I was hoping to do that, but last night the temperature in the area dropped to less than 10 degrees Celsius (50 degrees Fahrenheit), so there were no butterflies moving about.  I did however manage to photograph monarch caterpillars at the University of Guelph Arboretum.  They too, are beautiful!

The monarch butterfly shown below, was photographed at the West Perth Wetlands, earlier this week (when it was quite a bit warmer!).

(For more butterflies, see the Gallery entitled Butterflies.)
