Start with an egg.

I watched the female laying eggs today in the milkweed patch.  This is the only one I snatched.

I found three more eggs and this little guy inhabiting the milkweed patch:

A bumper crop!

The egg I have inside needs a name.  Suggestions are welcome!

I'm enjoying your life story of a monarch butterfly.

Also, supposedly the way to start accumulating a fortune is to start with a penny. (I started that way but haven't accumulated one yet.) At the rate I'm going in another thousand years I'll be rich. :-)

I have seen only one monarch this year.  No eggs and no caterpillers
