A couple from Traverse City, Michigan, was stopped on a sidewalk lined with vegetation outside the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center west of Ashland.

“My wife found a monarch caterpillar. She’ll show you,” said the man. Among the milkweed, prairie ironwood and grey dogwood with small white berries, the woman pointed out the milkweed-leaf-chomping caterpillar with yellow, white and black bands.
