Because I have been seeing adult monarchs in the area this past week, I decided I better take a closer look at my common milkweed.
Sure enough I found about 5 eggs. While looking for eggs I found, to my delight and thrill, 2 monarch larvae.
The one in the photo is only 15 mm long. The other tyke was even smaller at 5 mm.
So - I have had a visitor(s) at my milkweed earlier than I thought.
