I just wish we could have them without all the foraging they do.

Kate and Crew said...

I've never seen any of those around here. What plants do they generally live on???

Nice picture though!!!

Darla, I hope it's a good sign for more caterpillars to come.

C&J, they do love their milkweed!

Kate, they use the milkweed plant as their host. I started mine from seeds, but some nursery centers will sell 1 gallon plants.

Oh wow! How many pretty winged creatures you will have soon!

Shamu, there's nothing quite like watching them make that transformation.

Lisa, it's so exciting! The best part is taking the cage outside and watching them all fly. So cool!
