Sutton GDN in Goshen
Cape May County, NJ

Lots of eggs and tiny Monarch caterpillars. Plus female Monarch laying more eggs. AT LAST! Have had male Monarchs in the garden since June 26, but 0 females until July 21. Did a Red-banded Hairstreak tally at 3 pm (21) and another at 5 pm (43); seems they're showing up more once the garden is not so blazing HOT. Tawny Emperor cats still on Hackberry.
