Monarch Egg (FIRST sighted)

Date: 06/19/2007

Number: 1

Have seen Monarchs on the wing in Cornish, Maine and found 9 eggs on milkweed behind my parent's barn in Lincolnville. My dad and I are amazed that Monarchs somehow find this location and lay eggs on the milkweed all summer and yet, for miles around, we can't find other Monarchs on milkweed.

None of the eggs were on leaves. They were all in the middle of the bud clusters. For the past few years that is where I find the majority of eggs.
Is this a Maine thing (don't think so)? Where do most MWers find eggs on the milkweed plant?
