This individual has been in and out of our yard this morning; fluttering everywhere but returning always to lay eggs on some emerging showy milkweed.

We've had great results with milkweed in attracting Monarchs; especially Narrowleaf Milkweed.

Just add Pipevine to your garden, and they will come... very satisfactory. Three or four individuals when I was getting this: all ladies.

Lots of fluttering, stopping only for a second or so; thus not great for photography.

Sorry about the poor pix. I suppose specific ID is problematic.

This may be remedied, as there are two; and I believe a nest. I could go back with binoculars; or someone else might with a more appropriate camera.

This "looks like a very large ant" was found a few nights ago strolling across my kitchen floor. Seemed friendly enough but I haven't seen an "ant" this large before. Curious about what he was searching for, what he generally eats and where he typically nests?
