Greetings from Laurel, MS

WV Monarch migrating through Laurel Mississippi

We are spending the day at Carole Jordan’s place in Laurel, Mississippi. Carole traveled with me on my first trip to Mexico. She maintains an apartment in Zitacuaro where she has lived several winters since 2004. She will help us work on our travel plans and has offered to let us stay at her place at Zitacuaro near the monarch butterfly reserves.

There is tropical milkweed growing and blooming in her yard. All three chrysalides that have traveled with us from WV have eclosed and I released them this morning to nectar on the milkweed. All of them were males.
