|Event||Monarch (OTHER observations)|
|Date of Sighting||03/10/06|
|Comments||I caught my
first female monarch on Friday (3/10/06) and two more on Saturday (3/11/06). This
is about two weeks earlier than my earliest sighting in 12 years.
The Saturday females are laying eggs. One has laid 64 eggs since yesterday. I don't have much milkweed available so I will probably let one of them go.
The female I caught on Friday has O.e. spores on her and she has yet to lay an egg. She also had a smaller body mass than the two that are laying.
