Monarch Adult Sighted

This is an example of 4 Monarch’s I left outside. This season I tried to not interfer but rather monitor my Monarch’s outside. The location of the chrysalis is similar to previous years. I watched the Monarch female lay eggs and several hatched at the same time. Like this one, the left wings didn’t develop. One had a bead of yellow liquid on its right wing. This was a sad fall as I had many caterpillars that disappeared. I witnessed others dead in J formation. As I write this I’ve been watching what appears to be a healthy Monarch all afternoon on my Mexican Sunflower. In 2 days we will have cold temperatures. In the spring I took eggs indoors and released about 40. I’ve learned there is controversy about raising indoors.
