Monarch Adult Sighted

Date: 06/05/2024

Number: 3

Two weeks ago or so a lone male arrived and set up camp in our yard circling around waiting for females. Today a female arrived. While he circled about another male appeared. The two males fluttered about high above the garden while the female flew low, dodging in and out of cover but popping over to lay eggs on the showy milkweed. She looked at the narrow leaf but kept returning to the large leaves of the showy. We also have about ten very young caterpillars on narrow leaf and showy milkweed but we missed the female laying those eggs.
