Beth Polvino

my yard NABA #1151 & Monarch Waystation #8318
Cape May County, NJ

In spite of the winds the yard is continuing to have Monarchs coming through the yard and nectaring and then moving down the dunes nectaring on seaside goldenrod. This American Lady caterpillar walked across the sidewalk in front of me looking for a place to pupate. I watched a good number of AL eggs laid on pussytoes earlier this week.
