Summer writing inspirations – Monarch caterpillars

A swan plant in the back garden is filled with Monarch caterpillars. Eventually they’ll eat their fill, chrysalise, and turn into butterflies – all irrespective of the human society around them and all its drama and stupidities. It’s an inspiring thought.

A photo I took of a Monarch caterpillar on a swan plant.

Taking a photo wasn’t easy. The plant was moving in the wind and the target miniscule, fooling the 11-point auto-focus system on my SLR. In the end I switched it off and focused manually.
