This is a Monarch caterpillar and will transform into a Monarch butterfly in a few weeks.
If you want to have Monarchs in your garden, go to your local nursery center and ask for milkweed. Sometimes its labeled as butterfly weed, but its the same thing. Milkweed is the only host plant of this butterfly so its important to incorporate this plant in your garden.
I counted five caterpillars on one milkweed! Can't wait until they turn into butterflies!
