Monarch Adult Sighted
Sightings report image

Date: 08/05/2022

Number: 1

This monarch was in a flower pot and could not open her wings properly to dry. They were crimped. We tried to help but there were holes in them and they did not pump up to the right size. So very sad.
Hopefully the remaining 3 will be a success. This plant has produced many larvae and chrysalis. We have see one butterfly successfully leave

[Additional information provided by observer and added by Journey North, 08/16/2022]:

Where I live there is a huge amount of milkweed but unfortunately not the monarchs. The information and photos I sent you were from my neighbour milkweed plant. She has a plant growing on her property and it naturally was home to the larvae and chrysalids. The monarch who did not develop properly was because the larva crawled into a flower pot and made its chrysalid there so there was no room to spread it's wings. She will make sure there is nothing around the plant to hinder the monarchs next year. We were quite surprised to see so many larvae. But this is all in a natural setting and we do not interfere in any way.
