You explained it perfectly - self transfer with human intervention.

I thought you guys all worked from home nowadays! Possibly you could source a trapcam.

Thanks, Paul Alan and Ann!

Yes, he is crawling down the stem, Ann.

Alan, I'm not sure what you mean by "transferred yet."  They arrived as
tiny eggs on a  small potted milkweed plant.  They hatched, and started
eating the leaves of that plant.  As it got a bit sparse, I took a larger
milkweed that I had planted in a pot, and placed it in my larger pop-up
cage.  Then, I put the original plant in the same cage so that the leaves
were touching, so they could cross over to the new bigger plant.  They have
obviously shed their skins several times, and appear to be about half the
full size already.  Then, I hope they will pupate, and I will take more
images and try to see if I can catch one in the act of emerging as a
butterfly.  This will be difficult, as I am away at work during the week.
