Subject: Re: [birders] OT Monarchs
The milkweed that I planted a few years ago is
finally coming into fruition. I haven't seen
that many Monarchs visiting the plants however I
did capture one that I believe was laying
eggs. I inspected the leaves every day but no
caterpillars. I am getting one milkweed seed pod
this year which is a first. Hopefully, next year will be more fruitful?
