Today we are monitoring several monarch butterflies in various stages. Some are still eating and moving around, others are in their J stage, while several others have just formed a new chrysalis, like our favorite larva (caterpillar) Truman (from the Truman show - we've been watching every stage since he hatched. Truman is the chrysalis just to the right of our very first reared monarch butterfly of the year. She made her appearance around 9:30, and Truman formed his chrysalis alongside her about 1/2 hour later. Needless to say, this has been a very exciting morning at Naturedigger!
