Metamorphosis I

"Monarch Caterpillar and Common Milkweed"

approx. size: 4" x 6"- pastel

 Monarchs (Danaus plexippus) are highly unpalatable to predators and are mainly left alone. This is because they feed exclusively on the milkweed plant (in this case, the common milkweed, Asclepias syriaca) which contains a toxin that the caterpillar absorbs.

This painting has found a home in Burlington, Ontario.
