    Its 8.3 outside (feels like 5 apparently) here in Welly … its very cold and wet! But a new girl emerged today (I called her June lol). She is the second of my indoor brood to have emerged. The first struck it lucky in a patch of warm ‘ish’ days and flew off. I have four likely candidates left to emerge, two that look like they won’t and one large hungry caterpillar. I just hope to get some better days to release the butterflys.

    Hi Leslie

    I suggest you release them somewhere where they’ll get MAXIMUM sun and shelter and leave it to Nature. I have them emerging outside and when I see them I move them somewhere where they’ll get every ray of sun, and no wind – and if it rains it’s relatively sheltered. Best you can do at this time of year.

    Great work!

    Please report it in to http://www.mb.org.nz so that next year and more we have a record of where monarchs were and when.

    Cheers

    Jacqui
