Sighting for June 10, 2017

My yard, Monarch Waystation #271
Newport News city, VA

Incidental sightings as I was gardening and puttering around the house. A monarch was seen through my patio door fluttering in the back yard, by its behavior it seemed to be doing the “leg tap touch—&-go dance” search for milkweeds. Later came out to find an egg on a swamp milkweed leaf. ET Blue & Duskywing were both females, one nectaring & one basking on a sunny but chilly morning.
