Submitted by: Angellessard
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: It was about 7 degrees celsius (40f), the grass was a little moist. He was sleeping on a stem to a grass I'm unsure of. Just a big clover maybe? No milkweed around. I'm certain it's a monarch but I kept him to watch him grow and need some help.
