Monarch Egg (FIRST sighted)

Date: 05/10/2007

Number: 1

On Thursday when I came up Broad Creek Road into the Knobbs (just west of union WV) I found the milkweed to be 6-10 inches tall and I found 14 eggs on one plant in one of my favorite spots. I found no eggs on any of 12 plants immediately surrounding the one plant. The eggs were all laid in typical one at a time fashion. I figure it must have been a tired female at the end of her journey north... Since then I have found
4 more eggs on my property on the Knobbs.
