Migrating

monarchWe were outside when we noticed seven or eight Monarchs on our butterfly bush.  There were two or three other ones flitting about also.  It is the first time we have ever noticed so many Monarchs in our back yard at the same time.  We think they are migrating.

Audrey went outside and caught a few to test for OE.  One of them was sick, so she kept him, but released the healthy one.  She also roamed the neighbors’ yard to see if she could find anymore.

We are hoping that more Monarchs use our yard for a B&B as they travel south.  We have been working hard to plant more Monarch friendly plants and, according to Audrey, you can never have too many butterflies.
