Nice
Looks like it's ready to hula!

 
I am so glad I caught it hatc
I am so glad I caught it hatching. I brought one of the leaves with 3 eggs on it indoors so I'd have a chance to get a photo of the hatch but those 3 all hatched while I wasn't looking :( so then I just plopped myself by the milkweed in the garden and waited for movement from an egg. It was well worth the wait :)

 
Thanks for your patience and your post.
These are very unique photos, indeed.
