We came across these caterpillars at my friends house in Grayling this past weekend and looked them up.  They appear to be the caterpillars that will become Monarchs...and they were everywhere.  The Lansing State Journal has a story today about how rare the Monarchs are becoming.  Every creature has it's place in it's habitat and the loss of milkweed in our environment is having a negative effect.  Planting milkweed in your garden is one way you can help out a monarch.
