A few weeks ago I wrote about my milkweed. It’s attracted many butterflies including some monarchs. Around that time one of my grandsons found this little caterpillar.
Today we found one this size!
This site has a lot of information about monarchs. Did you know that they usually only lay a single egg? It takes about a month to go from egg to butterfly. I do hope this little critter makes it to the butterfly stage. A July monarch, it won’t migrate and will live a few weeks to a month. Her offspring will be the ones migrating in September.
