We love to see the Monarch Butterflies in the garden so when I was clearing at the side of the house I left the small Swan Plant on which their caterpillars feed. In recent days I have noticed caterpillars on the bush (if one could call it that as it is not very big and getting eaten rapidly).
Some of the caterpillars are quite large whereas the only one to be in the chrysalis stage is the smallest one.
Earlier in the year there was just one caterpillar on the plant but it vanished so I presume it had been attacked by a wasp or some other predator. I just hope that we have enough feed for these ones.
