MONARCH ON MILKWEED - We are always happy to see the Monarch butterflies return to the milkweed meadow on Wapack Wilderness. The  female Monarch will lay eggs on the milkweed plants, which will hatch into caterpillars which will metamorphosis into chrysalis to emerge as Monarch butterflies before they migrate south in late summer. I know this is a female because it lacks the black spot along the vein of the hindwing that a male would have.
