My last few butterflies of the season are emerging.
They're taking longer in the chrysalis stage now - up to 7 days longer. When the weather was warm, they'd make a chrysalis and emerge as a butterfly 10 days later. Now it's more like 15-20 days in the chrysalis and they don't always emerge successfully.
However long they take they're still amazing and I love each of them.
I have 3 more chrysalis' and when those butterflies have emerged, my total for the season will be 198 Monarchs released (and I wasn't even trying - next season, after our house move, I plan to work harder at raising Monarchs).
