  2. Thanks for the nice comments. I really love the color combination of these caterpillars with the red and yellow of the butterfly weed flowers. They chowed this entire plant in one afternoon!

  8. Thank you all for the nice comments about the photos. I've been playing with a new lens and am amazed at how much detail I'm able to pick up! Amy, I've just spent 45 minutes on the Gardening Gone Wild site - WOW - it's an amazingly informative blog. Thanks for the recommendation! I'm looking forward to the Macro in a Mason Jar contest!

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
