      what kind of monarch is that ?
    • SusanLR
      @Gary DuBois There is only one variety of Monarch. This one is a male. The black dots on the lower wings is how you tell. Females lack the dots.

      I love Monarch butterflies. We have dozens of milkweed plants around the house. One of the most beautiful things I've ever seen was watching a monarch hatching from a chrysalis.❤️

      @unreality That is one of my interests. And it helps with the population.
      I have a garden of milkweed I keep for this intention. They lay the eggs and when they hatch
      and the caterpillars are big enough I gather them and bring them in the house where I have
      incubators. I put the caterpillars in them and cut pieces of the milkweed daily to put in with the
      caterpillars. I clean the incubators daily and put in fresh milkweed cuttings.
      In about a week the caterpillars climb to the top of the incubator, shoot out a web and go into the
      J-peg position. I've watched the chrysalis emerge from the caterpillar, then hatch in 10 days into the
      butterfly. I let them drink a necter made of honey and water I make for them before I send them on
      their way.

      Awesome! People like you are help the Monarch butterflies a lot. Hopefully one day they'll no long be extinct. :) Sometimes my sister does what you do. I think she has an even bigger heart than me.
