Ornate Tiger Moth

Yesterday I was heading out the door and stopped to tie my shoes, when I looked down on the door mat and saw this Ornate Tiger Moth crawling around.  I thought the wings were striking.  This moth has a range from southern British Columbia to Southern California.

Monarch Caterpillar!

Today we say this Monarch caterpillar in Irene's garden.  I'd like to stick around and watch it become a butterfly.
