Since I started planting milkweeds in my garden I have an over abundance of monarch butterflies visiting and laying eggs.
The results are lots of caterpillars eating the milkweed to the ground. I always wonder where do all the caterpillars go? These critters are very good at finding hiding places.
This pupa attached itself to the fence in the vegetable garden. I been keeping an eye on it for a few days.
I didn’t get to see the actual transformation to a beautiful monarch butterfly but Sunday I found this monarch nearby getting ready to fly and an empty cocoon.
