Mostly overcast but there was a period of 2-3 hrs of more sun. Windy. The monarch cat picture shows 17 cats in one area on my swamp milkweed. I’d estimate 3 dozen Monarch cats & 2 dozen Black Swallowtail cats. All chrysalis continue from both species.

  • Black Swallowtail 9
  • Cabbage White 11
  • Orange Sulphur 3
  • Cloudless Sulphur 6
  • Gray Hairstreak 1
  • Eastern Tailed-Blue 1

  • Red Admiral 4
  • Common Buckeye 14
  • Monarch 15
  • Horace's Duskywing 1
  • Fiery Skipper 1
