Monarch Caterpillars in fall

We haven’t had a freeze yet, so those monarch caterpillars are still chomping down on their milkweed leaves.

But these days they have to share, as the leaves are getting scarcer.

  1. I’m trying for the second year in a row to cultivate milkweed in my garden. Don’t know what happened to the first plant and bought two more earlier. Wish I had more room! The decline of the butterflies due to loss of wild milkweed is worrisome. Thank you for sharing the great photos!

    • The decline of all insects is worrisome! Thanks for sharing your yard, which is what we squirrels truly believe needs to happen to keep us all living on this planet.
