Monarch butterflies are the most beautiful of all butterflies, some say, and are considered the “king” of the butterflies, hence the name “monarch”. We found a bunch of Monarch caterpillars hanging on some foliage at my sisters. These will be part of the “fourth generation” born in September and October. They will not die after six weeks but will migrate to warmer climates like Mexico or California and will live for six to eight months! This is AMAZING to me!
