Monarch caterpillars were common on my friends Asclepias currisavica plants around his yard today. There must have been at least two dozen or more. There were also several Monarch caterpillars in all stages of getting ready to transform into chrysalises and three fresh chrysalises. The one adult Monarch was freshly emerged. Also had one Cabbage White caterpillar on a Cleome plant. Didn’t know they went to those.

  • Cabbage White common
  • Orange Sulphur 2
  • Monarch 1
