Twin Girls!!

 The 2nd caterpillar became a female adult today in this series of photos by Sue Peters, Indiana Master Naturalist.  This Monarch will now begin the trip to the OYAMEL FIR TREES in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico.  After wintering on the fir trees, the Monarchs will begin the trip north where, in Texas, they will mate, lay eggs and die as the generation they began continues the trek north.
God speed, little ladies!
