I wasn’t sure I was going to have a Nature post for this week, but when we were eating at a roach coach the other night, they had a huge amount of Crown Flower plants with TONS of monarch caterpillars and chrysalises. Nothing to amazing for us, since we have our own collection at home, but the kids are still so fascinated. While checking out the caterpillars, we found Hawaii Ladybugs! After researching, I have come to find they are called Metallic blue lady beetles. They are the only ‘ladybugs’ I have ever seen here, and since we are wrapping up a ladybug unit, it was PERFECT timing!
