My milkweed patch is rapidly withering, and multiple larvae had congregated on the few pitiful remaining leaves. I had noticed some newly emerged young fresh plants so I picked the old leaves and layed them on the little fresh plants to provide fresh grazing! Also, I found a second chrysalis (saw the first one emerge last week) I could see the back of the abdomen of the butterfly in the cover.
