Monarch Butterfly Caterpillar Dilemma : Part 3

Things are moving forward at the moment. Four of the caterpillars have turned into the chrysalis stage. Three others are hanging, waiting to turn. I managed to video one but it was slightly out of focus. The other three changed when we weren't around. It's silent and quickly over, so you have to be fortunate to catch it.

A special hi to G, who's been watching progress on this site with the caterpillars but been unwell for a little while. All the best.

Three chrysalis caught here, along with some hungry caterpilars

One in the process of settling down. They wriggle at this point
