Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: I was given a tiny monarch caterpillar in a class offered by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. She was a caterpillar for 17 days, in chrysalis for 13 days, and emerged on July 19th. This picture was taken July 21st, when my daughter and I released her.
