Sighting for July 3, 2021

Sutton GDN in Goshen
Cape May County, NJ

With an absence of Tiger Swallowtails in our garden since mid-June, it was lovely to see a newly emerged female. Clay spotted this full-size Monarch caterpillar on Common Milkweed. So many are preyed upon, that it is good to see some reach full size. Male Monarch going round and round, looking for a female to mate with.
