What do we have here? A Sam-caught lizard far left standing on his hind legs, assorted beetles too small to see, and a caterpillar under a milkweed leaf. Sam has been catching beetles for some time now, and knows how to play nicely with them, and "trains" them, as in loud shouts of "No! No!" when they go somewhere off limits!
We're all in this together! Mr. Caterpillar is lounging on Sam's left hand.
