Milkweed Community #3

When you say milkweed I think monarchs, and so it was with great joy that I saw a female monarch butterfly, Danaus plexippus, laying eggs on the plants in my humble but apparently good enough patch of Asclepias curassavica. The egg laying began around the last week of October, and these are some photos of the caterpillars moving through the growth stages necessary before they pupate.
