Sad Update

I came into my office a couple weeks ago, after my weekend, to find the little hickory horn devil deceased.  :(

I'm not sure what caused its demise.  It had food, and it had been eating.  I'd also provided water, just in case.  Maybe it was lack of sunshine - my office is very dark.

On the other hand, my coworker is the caterpillar queen, and she has a house full of cecropia, polyphemus, imperial and monarch caterepillars.

Yes - monarchs!  At last we are starting to find some.  We now have TWO at work (whereas by now we normally have had 50+ go thru our monarch monitoring containers.

Plant more milkweed!!!
