The Gathering

 Monarch butterflies lay their eggs on milkweeds, like the common milkweed below.


Daddy longlegs gathered on it this morning.


Another one stayed near the buds at the top of the plant.


I wonder if they each staked out a territory and are ready for the flowers to bloom and the insects to come?

This one didn’t like the attention and quickly backed to the underside the leaf.
