Here in New Zealand we are into and the butterflies are migrating to wintering havens throughout both islands.

The cooler weather has reduced the pressure of on the Monarch caterpillars and I counted a dozen on the Swan plants near the house. I also saw a number of caterpillars on the many Swan plants in my wilderness garden.

Over the past week or so I have observed a number of butterflies with fresh wing markings and I assume that these have recently hatched here.
