Hello from Miller Road.I have no Monarch activity on milkweed – they haven’t blossomed yet. I have seen Monarchs and I believe Yellow SwallowTails flitting among the day lilies in my yard. I keep checking for eggs. Thanks for the great photos and the video – they are very helpful. Be well and stay cool~ M
Amazing Judy! Though I thought I saw 2 last week now I”m not sure as haven’t seen any and can’t find any eggs or caterpillars on milkweed in the fields or in the garden. I look everyday.
Still hoping, K
Greetings butterfly saviors,
Unfortunately, I have not had a single Monarch. I fear that we will be alive as they become extinct. I would love to be wrong though.
Be well all,
We’ve seen 3 monarchs up on Dusty Ridge in Putney and lots of milkweed (not the swamp one) to check so haven’t found any eggs or caterpillars.

I have seen a couple of monarchs near my house and a lovely small monarch caterpillar, an instar, out on the power line on Deer Run. There are a few around. I am hoping more will show up. Ever hopeful…. Lots of milkweed all three kinds.
I will keep looking. Seems like they were later than this last year.
Yes — my map and log from last year (of 50+ individual caterpillars and chrysalises) got going seriously in mid-August and went through the first week in October.
Have seen 3-4 monarchs around but just passing through.
Yes Yes I saw one in my beautiful lilies and daylilies.
Hello Butterfly friends,
I have been in the lower peninsula of Michigan for 6 days near Lake Mi. I have seen at least 20 monarchs and one caterpillar!
I hope they’ll make it to Vt. sometime too.
Hi All – I just saw a Monarch on my lavender Butterfly bush. Will go look to see if there are any more.
