There are Monarchs on Cape Ann, and they are laying eggs!!! Check your milkweed Friends! This is nearly a month earlier than usual.
Jane Danekis had a female several days ago in her garden on Revere Street and she deposited over 100 eggs on shoots of newly emerging milkweed.
Michele Del Vecchio saw a Monarch at Good Harbor Beach today, too!
Please let us know if you have seen a Monarch recently, and take a snapshot if you can. Thank you 🙂
A Monarch egg is pale golden yellow in color and shaped like a tiny ridged dome. The egg is no larger than a pinhead.
