The first eclose of the season happened a few minutes ago. Those first 10 minutes watching the monarch adjust its position and hanging on while those wings come down is always a bit scary. I read that monarchs can climb up paper towels so I'm experimenting with that in case one of them falls in those early critical minutes. I expect 4 more to eclose today. It is a warm humid day but overcast and rainy. The Monarchs may be overnight guests until the rain clears out tomorrow morning.
