    monarch butterfly caterpillar babies eat milkweed leaves the same way that humans eat
    CORN ON THE COB !!!
    they hold onto the leaf with their feet .. with their back end towards the milkweed stalk ..
    then .. they munch .. from left to right .. starting at left edge of leaf ..
    and when they reach as far right as their range of motion will allow ..
    they rear up and quickly and methodically swing the upper part of their bodies back to left edge ..
    and then they MUNCH MUNCH MUNCH MUNCH MUNCH to the right AGAIN  !
    and
    AGAIN  !
    and
    AGAIN  !

    MONARCH BUTTERFLY is the most famous migrating insect  !
