Hatching Monarch Butterfly

Here is a view of the Butterfly worm I found. It was attached to the back of a Milkpod leaf. I brought it home and it ate the leaves, then attached itself upside down on the container. A couple of days later it had a green cocoon around it. For three days it hung there. The next thing I see is it is all black. Then it slowly slides out of the cocoon, and it is a BEAUTIFUL MONARCH BUTTERFLY!

I hope the pictures can explain the process better than I can.

That is so neat to watch them hatch. My grandchildren hatched lots of them last year and then turned the Monarch loose after they hatched.

Each year I plant dill in my garden. Monarch catepillars love it and I regularly have several of them on it. With the destruction of the rainforests, I think it's so important to preserve these beautiful creatures, and a planting of dill seems like a small thing to do.
