Sighting for May 16, 2019

Jack Miller

my yard Petersburg
Cape May County, NJ

Morning rain was followed by full sun and 70. While working in the gardens I noticed a small female monarch; sure enough, she decided my milkweed patch was worthy of attention. Photo of yard's first monarch egg.

[This is our first photo of the next generation of monarchs and we also have an informal report of a caterpillar in BUR. jc]
