I really recommend if you have an opportunity to see a Monarch butterfly go through its stages. We were privileged to see a Monarch butterfly lay hey eggs on a Milkweed plant in our back yard. These dots quickly grew into yellow and black caterpillars that were very hungry. They only eat the Milkweed, after about 10 days they hung in a J position for 2 days and then wiggled into a green cocoon with these beautiful gold dots around the edge. Nearly 2 weeks of hanging the cocoon changes colour and looks black. The wings can be seen. When the cocoon is clear and you can see the orange of the wings watch carefully as quick as a wink the butterfly emerges. We saw the whole thing and it was amazing. Great family entertainment and learning for the children. A real treat for all.
