Monarchs in the Milkweed?

Posted on

Last fall I blogged about finding milkweed in the meadow. Now, I can say that my wish that maybe monarchs will be hatching here comes closer to reality.

I think I found a monarch larvae here. The milkweed is flourishing. Other butterflies love it.

Like this great spangled fritillary. And, of course, the bees.

Looks like a bumble bee.

All in all, a good day in the meadow.

Now, to save that monarch from the predatory birds.
