I had been watching a female monarch fluttering low looking for milkweed in our yard and near pasture, when I found a small milkweed with multiple eggs on it! Specifically 6 eggs laid on the milkweed sprout itself and 4 eggs laid on a plant leaf right by the milkweed. Unusual for monarchs to lay this many eggs on one milkweed, but the pickings are slim, with the milkweed still just emerging.
