It is late June and I am only just now seeing my first confirmed monarch sighting of the year. This butterfly was moving so quickly that I just barely got a few blurry photos of it. Her wings were faded and ragged, but she did lay at least one egg there on the milkweed here in Asheville. I have not seen any in Chapel Hill. Has anyone else seen any monarchs this year?
I saw several when I was in Columbia.
