Monarch Season


It’s Monarch season.  No, not the dreaded form of government, but those butterflies that manage to migrate from the north east to Mexico every year.  Because Susan has both milkweed and butterfly bushes in or garden, we’ve managed to attract a few this year, including one that is currently pupating.

And that left me with a question.  I saw the caterpillar hanging from under the leaf when I went to work on Friday, and I saw the pupa when I got home, and the pupa is smaller.  After a bit of searching on the internet I found a video which actually shows that transformation in time lapse, and it is definitely weird.  I might have to rig up something to get my own time lapse of them next year.
