Description

Found after hard rain, but rain or no rain I found them by the millions, munching on leaves, buds, or drinking from flowers of the milkweed plants all along the golf course at Oglebay resort, where I went for a family vacation. I also found them sitting on other plants nearby stands of milkweed. I found them mating a lot, though I never got to see the females lay eggs.
