Monarchwatch draws to a close…

To revisit my timeline: Milkweed plants bought November 7, 4 caterpillars discovered November 9 5th and younger caterpillar discovered November 21 They grew and grew... Still growing at Thanksgiving... ...and at Christmas First chrysalis on 12-31 and the 2nd a few days later (2 of the original 5 catts made it; 1 died and 2 vanished) We've had temps back into the 70's this week so I took the tank back outside, and noticed that one of the pods was dark today. That's either very good or very bad news, so I got out the flashlight: It's good news! Very good news! I almost have a baby!!
