Fabulous!!! After seeing a huge increase in monarch eggs and cats in Maine
this summer (at least compared to recent years), I expected a significant
number at Easter Point, Gloucester. Haven't seen the beautiful display I'd
hoped. Did I miss it? Thanks, Fran Ludwig PS: I still have
chrysalides that were found as eggs in Maine at the beginning of September,
so they will be late migrators.
