I checked over the weekend to see if the milkweed that had been cut in the empty lot was regrowing. And sure enough ,it was up about 4-6". I collected 16 eggs! They've since hatched and are munching away in the hatchery. I went out again and found 5 more that just hatched yesterday. So I should have some pics in a couple weeks. I'll see if I can happen to catch one morphing into it's chrysalis, or emerging. It's hit or miss to catch those events. They only take a few minutes.
If you want to see if your milkweed has any eggs, look for these.....
Sometimes it's hard to tell the egg from the milkweed sap. The eggs are not as white usually. And if you look at them from the side they are pointed and a teeny bit shiny.
In only a day or two they will show their stripes. It's amazing how fast they grow, and how much they eat!
