Location: Moely Prairie, Prairie du Sac
Sauk County

I witnessed a Monarch butterfly ovipositing on one of our fields of Common Milkweed today. I counted at least 8 eggs in the area and I'm sure there were a lot more. I also witnessed an American Lady who had so little wing left it was a wonder it could even fly.
