Found this gal on milkweed today; she’s in the butterfly house hanging by the garden shed behind 195 Adams. Have a look! But please don’t remove or touch her — as bacteria from humans may harm her.

Is This A Pupa? A Butterfly That Overwintered On Milkweed?

18 Mar

Found on native milkweed while pruning today:  A specimen that looks like it could be a pupa or some type of chrysalis.

We’ll investigate.

In the meantime, does anyone have a butterfly net or pop up display cage where we can place it outside?
