Many of my pictures are taken on my morning run. In the years before digital cameras, I saw lots of transient natural phenomena worthy of being photographed, but camera equipment was too big and bulky to carry while running. Now there are small versatile digital cameras available that can do most everything that used to take a case of equipment.

Caption: Monarch caterpillars eat any of the milkweed plant which is tender enough for their taste. This fellow is chomping his way through a incipient umbel (umbel bud?) which normally would develop into a flower head. His location is hidden from from predators, of which there are many. Only 1-3% of Monarch eggs survive to adulthood.
