Monarch Project, Day 59

We're ending the project on a rather down note this year as Monarch #8 emerged with disfigured wings. After feeding #8 from some cut milkweed and blazing star, and giving the wings ample time to straighten and dry, we used a procedure found on in a last-ditch attempt to straighten them. Unfortunately, #8 died sometime this morning. That leaves 8 monarchs raised this year, 6 of which survived to take flight.
