Monarch Egg (FIRST sighted)

Date: 04/29/2007

Number: 1

April 29, Stevensville (Kent Island) MD at Terrapin Park:
A very faded worn female monarch was egg-dumping on a clump of about 2 dozen common milkweed plants (Asclepias syriaca). Each plant was up about 10-12" and each leaf had about a dozen or more eggs. The female continued to lay more eggs as we watched.

A few hours later in Ridgely, MD at Adkins Arboretum, another very faded worn monarch was seen also laying eggs on common milkweed. These are the first monarchs I have seen laying eggs this season.
