Location: My yard, Father-in-law's farm, & Muir Park
Marquette County

77º and sunny in the afternoon, and WINDY! Polyphemus hatched out here. Would have been burned in a leaf pile if we hadn't brought it in. First Harvester. Monarchs, Azure, and American Ladies laying eggs. Saw many more that blew by so fast that they couldn't be positively IDed.
