Here is a recipe for something incredible:

Start with some Milkweed, wild or cultivated. The cultivated forms can be called Asclepias, Butterfly Weed, Joe Pye Weed...
Add a few Monarch caterpillars...
Feed them through several molt stages until the Chrysallis emerges... (the one hanging is almost ready to molt into the pupa, or chrysallis stage)
Wait 10 days...
and you get to release beautiful Monarch butterflies!
Did you know that every 4th generation migrates south for the winter?

Here are some great Butterfly websites:
Order your own butterflies and supplies here or here!
