Recently I posted on the plight of the monarch butterfly. Today I was looking at some
Asclepias syriaca (milkweed) in a ditch bank in Obion County, Tennessee. I am pleased to report that in addition to numerous Tetraopes tetropthalmus, i found one Danaus plexippus (monarch) caterpillar! While this doesn’t represent a complete recovery, it is significantly more than zero caterpillars. I keep looking – I hope you will too!
