Today my job was to walk around the milkweeds and record any interesting things. On plant 340 I got to take a picture of a 2nd instar Caterpillar it was 6.8 mm long. There was one of the plants that had 2 LAMB (large milkweed bug or Oncopeltus fasciatuis) mating on the top of a milkweed plant. Milkweed plant 361 had a medium sized praying mantis. On the plant 362 a monarch kept flapping its wings on the umbel of a milkweed plant.
