Monarch Caterpillars by Christina Rollo. A macro photograph showing detail of a pair of Monarch Caterpillars (Danaus plexippus) feeding on a milkweed plant after a rain shower. Monarchs are foul-tasting and poisonous to predators due to the presence of cardenolide aglycones in their bodies, which the caterpillars ingest as they feed on milkweed. Two Rivers Photography competition winner.
