Update on BSW & Monarch Cats

treehugger101July 27, 2014

Here are 2 pics as promised. I found 2 tiny baby BST cats today and one Monarch baby just hatched. I am down to 3 Luna babies too small for pics yet. I am trying other leaves. As for the Monarchs, one has attached himself to the plastic ceiling in my butterfly habitat. I have a great branch in there but he would not use it. Will attaching to plastic hurt him? I have the others just ready to hang, too. Thanks!!!

BST. The pics look blurry here but not in photoshop. Maybe I should not resize?

Cool I love black swallowtails. How are the Luna's doing?

The Lunas are not doing at all. They chose to starve to death rather than eat the black walnut leaves. That is all I have on our property of the preferred list. It looks like I lost two more and so am down to 1 and he will probably go to. It's really sad. I was so excited to raise Lunas because I love them and have never done so.
