Butterfly sighting

Jul 1

Location: Fitchburg residential butterfly garden
Dane County

This is going to be quite a week for Monarchs for us. Last week we had 6 eclose and fly away. By midday today 11 more had eclosed, some of whom are still hardening their wings. And we have about 45 more waiting in their chrysalises; they will probably eclose by the end of this week. But no new eggs in the garden for days now. Hopefully the next generation will get started ovipositing soon.
