Monarch Project, Day 45

#'s 4-7 hatched over the weekend. Had a bad bit of luck with two of them, one of whom was attacked by a wasp while warming up for its first flight, and the other of which seems to have either hatched deformed, or broke its wing shortly after hatching. We got the wasp away from the first, and set it in a sunny spot nearer the house with a bit of goldenrod. It flew away into the trees the following morning. There wasn't much we could do for the other. Attempted to put it on some Rough Blazing Star so that it could at least get some nutrition. I'll check on it again when I get home.
