Hey, Kent said Wed. was going to be the BIG monarch migration day in 
VT - so Thurs they were streaming through NY!   Right Kent???

My last M chrysalis took air on Wed.   BUT, lo and behold, I found a 
5th instar yesterday, Thurs, on some still relatively 'fresh' 
milkweed in a twice mowed field.   I 'collected' it and it began 
immediately securing the 'button'.  S/he'll be a late migrant 
emerging in 16-18 days  making it an Oct 14-16 migrant.

I also have a black swallowtail spinning its chrysalis.  Any advise 
about overwintering this????
