butterflies this year

Filed under: Butterflies — Butterflygirl @ 10:01 am

I hate to say it, but it hasn’t been a very good year for my butterfly garden so far. The last couple of years I had monarch eggs on my milkweed as it was barely coming up out of the ground. This year I haven’t seen any at all yet.

I do have some caterpillars though, some
Black Swallowtails (Papilio polyxenes). I kept looking for them and couldn’t see them for some reason though, but they are there.

I found some duskywing eggs on my baptisia a while back, I haven’t noticed any caterpillars though.

And yesterday I found one Giant Swallowtail egg on my prickly ash, but that is all so far.
