All male butterflies

    In the past week or so I have had all 9 of my batch of chrysalides eclose successfully. Every butterfly was male! All healthy looking and including some really beautiful big ones. I’ve done 2 seasons of monarchs previously, and always had a mix of male and female adults. This just seems an odd coincidence. I’m in Wellington.

    I had a similar incident happen to me some years ago and reported it to Monarch Watch who told me it was pure coincidence… I don’t think they’ve changed that opinion since. Amazing, isn’t it? We could perhaps run a sweepstake on gender balance or something, LOL.
