Noted the first ragged female migrant monarchs here in central Ohio this
past Sunday (May 4) and Monday (May 5).  They wern't stopping to examine
potential oviposition plants, but seemed still to be in 'migration mode'.
There appears to be lots of new milkweed for them, so there may be a big
population surge this Summer if many reach here soon.
