Monarch Adult Sighted
Sightings report image

Date: 06/18/2024

Number: 2

Was out following a very tattered female that is so washed out. She almost looks gray. You can tell she is near the end of her life because she’s just in egg laying mode dropping eggs on milkweed 2,3 and even four on a single plant. As I was watching her I noticed a bright beautiful male that appears to have just enclosed as he was bright and not the best flyer, really enjoying the purple clover. Building up that strength as he is the start of the 2nd generation. Coincidentally my first captive raised monarch enclosed today. A male that I found as an egg on May 23rd marking just 26 days from egg collection to enclosing.
