Here is our first sighting of a Monarch Butterfly in the back this Spring. She spent a short time feeding on the Mexican Milkweed and there was a bit of ovipositing involved. Don’tcha love this time of year?

Hi Anna,
We haven’t seen a Monarch yet this spring, but the Painted Ladies and Mourning Cloaks have been about and the Swallowtails appeared earlier than usual this spring.  No Anise Swallowtails yet, but we have seen a Western Tiger Swallowtail flying around the yard.
