Lots of crawling, no other changes.
This morning, they had moved up to the very top leaves of the milkweed.
When I got home this evening, they sure weren't up top. The yellow oval is the leaf they were on yesterday. The red is where they were this morning.
They had all fallen or crawled down to the bottom leaves. This is the first time they've moved downwards. Everything below them is covered with frass. That's a technical word for caterpillar poop.
No sign at all of the big guys. This tale may be just about told.
