July 17 observations

Lab Note #9
Jul 18, 2014
I went out to the garden yesterday afternoon (~3 PM) and it was crazy how many butterflies and bees were out! We had a cool spring here, so it seemed like both the plants and insects were a little slow to start, but not anymore.

There is a page with garden updates hosted by FWS that you can check for more information on garden events and butterfly sightings.

I have to run, but here is the first caterpillar I spotted this year on the dill.

Also, the first monarch that I managed to get a photo of (but not the first one in the garden - we have lots now!)

Please wait...
