Monarch Butterflies : Part 3

 We are now in November 2019 and for Southern Hemisphere folk, that's spring. The Monarch Butterflies have been at it early and we are already into to breeding season. Starting on the 6th of November they have been turning into their beautiful selves and flying around our garden.

The weather still isn't at its optimum for their liking but increasing rapidly. Up until now* we have sent 15 on their journey. They mate like rabbits and we have dozens of eggs being laid. So many caterpillars are on the production line and dozens more in the chrysalis stage. We have taken 25 caterpillars to a neighbour to assist as the volume was getting too much to handle for the set up we have.

*As of 02/02/19

Here are some of the caterpillars chewing away nicely

Can you see the four new arrivals?
