                       Milkweed (asclepias) grows in my backyard.  Monarchs search specifically for this type of plant
                       on which to lay their eggs because it provides food for the caterpillar and it contains toxins,
                       called cardiac glycosides which make the caterpillar poisonous to many potential predators.
