Hope the little guy makes it. That's very cold for them to be there! Amazing what weather and wind will do to the critters during migration.
What a cutie! Hope the release goes well!
I hope he makes it as well -- I wonder why he showed up! Birds are here but alas, no butterflies (or mosquitos!)
I'd give it some sugar water and some leaves if you can. Good luck!
The sugar water was a perfect idea! I found a little lid and mixed some. As soon as I got it settle in a jar and put in the butterfly it started drinking it. Thank you.
I am glad you spotted it and hope it warms up for you to release the butterfly.
I hope it warms up enough for you to release this guy. I'm glad you were able to rescue him.
Hope it all works out and that you added the water as suggested. Some leaves would be great also.Cher Sunray Gardens
The monarch is much perkier now that it's had something to eat. Thanks to tina about the sugar water. It has a few leaves and a twig to sit on too. Suppose to be 32 degrees tonight so he gets one more night inside for sure. Friday on looks warm. As my hubby said, should it happen to be near the end of its life cycle at least it's going in comfort. But, I'm very optimistic that tomorrow it gets to be free to fly.
