View 9/14/2022 Verona WI Monarchs Swamp Milkweed and Butterfly WeedThey seemed to have appeared out of no where. On the first day we noticed, we saw one. Later that day, saw 5, the next day saw 10 and the next saw 12. At it's peak, there were 12 of many different sizes on the plants, which is what I'm recording here (9/8). After a couple of days of heavy rain, there were still 10 seen on the plants. As of today, I count 5. We noticed at least one crawling away from the plants about 15 feet away. We lost track of it, assuming it and the other larger caterpillars have gone off to pupate. We haven't seen any chrysalises.

View 8/7/2022 Sanger CA Monarchs Milkweed purchased from LowesWe purchased a dying Milkweed off the discount table at Lowes in early June and planted it in a sunny part of our yard, next to a year round creek. Yesterday, to our great surprise, we spotted two 5th instars, munching away on the leaves. This morning (6am PST), Aug 7, 2022, both instars were still present, but by 10:30am, one had left....presumably. How on earth did these two find our singular milkweed? Were they on our plants originally as eggs?
