On our pipevine.

We've had females visiting scores of times; but not as many larvae result as you'd hope for.

From eggs laid on our Showy Milkweed 3/21.

Dozens of tiny caterpillars were thriving by 4/6, but spiders took a heavy toll. A week ago I took 5 surviving insects and kept them for a week in a terrarium. All formed chrysalids over 48hrs. These are 2 days old at that stage.
