Observed 2 males and one female. The two males chased each other quite a bit between the front and back gardens attempting to establish dominance. The female was laying eggs in the back garden. Most of my milkweed in the front garden has been consumed by larvae. Most caterpillars are 4th and 5th instar now. I observed 5 "J" hook larvae pupate into a chrysalis this morning.
