Hello bird people. I found one of the chrysalis hanging from a milkweed leaf. Desided to hang it where I could watch it. I suspect it's one of those in the photo. There were four catapillers on the milkweed. I watched one emerge on Saturday last week. It was a female. There are about a dozen more on the milkweed now. Both swamp and common milkweed. From late July on we get the most butterflies. I had to shoo away a couple of mantises as they were very young and would probably try and eat them. We are in for a hot dry spell in the coming days. I will go out in the early morning to check on them.🦋🐛🌱🐱😊
