    This is for September sightings.
    9-27-07 Our first grade class at Temple Elementary School kept five monarch caterpillars in our classroom during September. We have one chrysalis left. We tagged and released four butterflies. During the spring of 2008 we'll check online at http://www.monarchwatch.org/ to see if anone found our butterflies.

    I went down to my little patch of milkweed to check on the caterpillars. I have seen very tiny caterpillars, and large (about 2 inch) caterpillars. I was surprised to find a large caterpillar moving through the grass away from the milkweed patch, and wondered where he was going. I watched him, only to find four more large caterpillars on the ground. I thought they might be searching for a high place to rest, but found out that they were eating very small milkweed plants that were hidden by the long grass. So now I must be careful to not step on the milkweed plants, but also to not step on the caterpillars going out for a bite.

    I've been looking at our milkweed leaves this week. It's about time to see some eggs. I haven't noticed any monarchs flying in the yard but have noticed them as I've been driving. I saw this big fellow in my search for eggs.
