Week 4 was an interesting week at the ditch. I was paired with Cody Phipps and Emma Thomsen for this week. I was unable to join them in the field as our schedules conflicted but I was able to go out and take a couple of pictures by myself. The milkweed set that we were assigned had a sizable gap in the middle as the plants turned the bend, but I was able to follow the water pipes to the next plants. The milkweeds that we saw ranged from very large to quite miniscule. They saw a caterpillar that was in its fourth instar stage. they also saw multiple snails in and about the plants. Hopefully that is a sign to come and more and more caterpillars will pop up in the coming weeks!
