Will This Butterfly Overwinter in Chrysalis and Emerge In 2020?

26 Oct

Remember Greta, the Monarch caterpillar captured in August?

She didn’t emerge from her chrysalis on schedule, but we’re hoping she is just waiting until Spring 2020 to reveal herself.

We’ll do more research and share what we learn.  In the meantime, check her out!
