How fun to find them at fifth instars! How many did you find? I "rescued" three monarch caterpillars at the third instar stage. It was very rewarding to see them go through the final stages. I used an old aquarium with a screen top, and we got to see them form their chrysalises, and then about 11-12 days later, we watched them emerge. So amazing! It was fun to set them free, too. Great caterpillar munching photos!


So exciting! What did you end up doing? I am hoping to find some on my milkweed next year since there were none this year. Great photos!


I debated that for years, but this year, a friend gave me two cats to raise indoors. What a thrill! Why did I wait so long for this? Bring them in, you won't be sorry!
