I'm hoping the link to Camera Critters opens up today~it'll be my first time there & I got some critters...
There are 4 generations of Monarchs-these are 3rd generation as they were born in July/August.
These critters eat and poop, eat and poop until my milkweed is depleted:
Everything had just grown back from the 40 Monarchs I released a few weekends ago
I spied an itty bitty critter this morning as I was assessing the milkweed situation & that is already the 4th generation...which lives the longest for the migration back down to Mexico.
had asked if the critters eat just the leaves or the stalks too.
Well D, I'm here to show you that they eat what ever they can!
These were pretty decimated from the last round of critters but is growing back healthy...
...and fast, but not fast enough. (for me)
...as soon as the seed pods open I plant everything that comes out. I now have 100's of tiny seedlings-
-EVERYWHERE there is soil!
But it's worth it cause they're so stinkin' cute.
...THIS is my reward!
Happy (butterfly) snapping!
