Gulf Fritillary And Monarch Caterpillar Shedding Skin



I took a couple of pictures today of an event that I’ve never been able to photograph before.  Butterfly Caterpillar’s shedding their skin.

This first one is a Gulf Fritillary.  These are scary looking Caterpillars.  Notice at the bottom left of the Caterpillar is the skin that it recently shed.
