Finally saw a female monarch in my flower bed that is loaded with common milkweed actually laying some eggs. I kinda thought that when the flowers started blooming that they will come. So far I've collected 4 and I thought I'd leave the area so she wasn't so nervous. I have also this Spring released 3 red admirals and have collected 3 more cats of those. I also released a black swallow tail. I have 4 monarchs in chrystalis forn and 2 3rd instars.
This will keep me busy
