Haven't seen a monarch yet this year, but was surprised and delighted to find 9 eggs on our newly-emerging milkweed patch. Our milkweeds aren't that big yet, I marvel at the ability of these tiny creatures to find our small meadow next to a swamp nestled in a second-growth forest. This is the first year we've had an indoor butterfly habitat, so I brought all 9 of the eggs in so these little guys can hatch and grow up in a safe environment.
