It’s been quite a while since I posted any photos of Monarch larvae (mainly because of cold weather and a lack of egg-laying butterflies) so here are nine that I found on our milkweed plants today, just enough to field a baseball team. Good thing we have plenty of plants with healthy leaves and flower buds for them to munch on. A few days ago I thought we had only one larva. Obviously I needed to look more carefully.
