We have a lot of milkweed planted on the farm.  Starting in September, we started to see Monarch caterpillars all over the milkweed plants.

We have different varieties of Asclepias planted such as tuberosa, incarnata, curassavica, and syriaca.  Below are some pictures of the chrysalis that we found throughout the farm.
