Monarch Egg (FIRST sighted)

Date: 06/29/2007

Number: 1

After sighting (and reporting) my first adult Monarch earlier today, this evening I found several eggs and 6 larvae ranging from just-hatched to one that was almost 3/8"! Obviously, I have had adults before today and just missed seeing them .. but they are definitely back and enjoying my common milkweed. I brought in 3 eggs and 6 larvae tonight to "raise", as I have done the past two summers. There were several spiders on the milkweed who were also "discovering" the eggs and larvae and were looking for an easy meal.
