Monarch Egg (FIRST sighted)

Date: 05/23/2007

Number: 1

Much to my surprise after work this afternoon in Haliburton Village, I spotted what I thought was a monarch flying over my head. I wasn't sure as it disappeared above a rooftop right after I saw it. But the colour, size & flight pattern convinced me it was.

I immediately went in search of some milkweed plants that I knew were growing around the weeded areas of the parking lot. Low and behold on one lonely milkweed plant, I found 3 eggs!! I have no idea if the monarch I saw laid those eggs but they are definitely this far north.

Hooray! Their arrival is getting earlier each year.
