New Generation

Early this past summer, I went down to the lake to go for a swim with my friends. During this time of the season there were tons of butterflies and dragonflies fluttering around. Just above the dock where we lay there was one butterfly that remained unusually still. As I looked closer, this is what I saw…

There were so many eggs. A couple weeks later when I went back to check on it, most of the eggs had already hatched. The leaves of the willow had small chunks where the tiny caterpillars had eaten through during their new-life binge. Although the majority had already gone, there were a few that were left there finishing up their meals.
