The one on the right definitely looks like a migrator. Much more streamlined. Its also a fresh pupate. #monarchbutterfly #monarchchrysalis #monarch

Day 4: I suspect these two were laid sooner than the egg I captured being laid. They emerged yesterday and tomorrow the third larvae should emerge.
.
They haven’t stopped munching since eating their way out of the egg, and the incredible amount of tiny feces they generate proves that.
.
They emerged off-white, turned green after binging on milkweed, and now have the characteristic stripes of the #monarchcaterpillar.

I saw more monarchs this summer than I have in years. Hopefully that’s a good sign, not a coincidence. .

Growing monarchs in a 10gal aquarium in the kitchen. Lots of milkweed in the country. 🐛♥️ #milkweed #milkweedformonarchs #monarchbutterfly #savethemonarchs #girlygardener #singlemom #smalltown

This is why I have milkweed in my garden—just look at this beautiful monarch butterfly larvae 🐛 But, I’m so worried—the stems are covered in aphids. I tried just wiping some off with my gardening gloves, but there were two more tiny monarch caterpillars and I didn’t want to knock them off. I’ve been looking for someplace to buy ladybugs this late in the season. I can’t spray the milkweed with cold water nor soap, because of the larvae. Any gardeners out there with ideas? With the monarch so threatened, I want to help the ones who live in my garden thrive. We have some incredible beauties visit our butterfly bush every day 🦋 #butterfly #monarchbutterfly  #nature #caterpillar #garden #gardensofinstagram #milkweed #milkweedformonarchs

One of the students found a half opened chrysalis on the ground. We were able to help the monarch butterfly hatch successfully and let it go free the next day. 😃🦋

Good thing I went into work today. The chrysalis I rescued from under the metal dumpster and taped to my filing cabinet became a thing of beauty today. A beautiful girl. #monarchbutterfly #monarchbutterflymigration2019 #savethepollinators

We discovered eight monarch caterpillars on a single diseased and quickly-dying Milkweed plant we almost mowed down at the house the other day. We gathered them up and the kids released them in a nearby field full of thriving Milkweed plants and adult butterflies so that they could enjoy their lives happy and free in community, not to mention eat to their heart's content! Happy caterpillars. 🐛🦋

The “milk” of milkweed can glue a monarch caterpillar’s mouth shut, and they’ll starve to death. 😮 luckily, monarch caterpillars know this, of course. That’s why they eat in strategic patterns that avoid chomping into the veins of the leaves. Specifically, they’ll go to the middle of the leaf, chew a hole through it to disrupt the xylem and phloem (the vascular tissue of a plant, that moves nutrients upward and downward), then head to the end of the leaf to safely munch away. Often you’ll see completely stripped leaves where everything has been eaten, except the leaf vein.
Milkweed gets its name from the white milky poisonous liquid called, “latex”, that flows throughout the plant. A #VeryHungryCaterpillar  chews a hole in the center of the leaf to disrupt the flow, allowing the caterpillar to then head to the bottom of a leaf and chow down. 
The toxins that make milkweed poisonous are beneficial to monarch butterflies, because they make the caterpillars distasteful to birds, lizards and other predators.

🍄🧡 Glow worms show the path we have to tread,
Dreamers we should be asleep in bed.
Moving slowly through the springtime,
Holding moments in the depth of care.
Whisper fairy stories til they’re real,
Wonder how the night could make us feel. 🍊🍄

Happy Saturday, friends!! If you’re new to my work, early this year I did a 100 day project where I painted a butterfly a day for 100 days! #100daysbutterflies
Here are a few of those butterflies and all of these originals are still available to go to a new home! Check out my Butterfly Collection over at www.tramcolwinart.com!

Also, I’m so excited for my butterfly workshop tomorrow at @crystalbridgesmuseum!! Who’s coming?! If you’re interested in joining this workshop, there maybe a few spots left!
