What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Just wanted to share this good shot of a monarch chrysalis on our dog pen. We planted annual butterfly weed and have a bunch of these. We love your site here in West Tennessee.

    do these usually stay on plant? mine dropped on the ground; didn’t know what it was. will butterfly still emerge if not connected to milkweed?

      Connection to milkweed is not a requirement for the emergence of the adult, but there might be other factors involved in it dropping to the ground that might have threatened its survival.
