At 3:53 p.m counted38 plants now in my backyard, Counted 17 larvae moving around, really eating the swamp milkweed., one plant gad 7 larvae eating almost 1/2 of plant, but there is another full swamp milkweed right next to this one. Also plenty more Tuberosa plants. Released at this time 5 th instar I was nursing back to health and the skinny baby that was raised from egg. It was about 1/2 inch and very active. The rain did affect my release time frame.. A wild turkey was up in the big oak tree being chased by large crows on the other side of tree is where I keep Monarch larvae.
