Exciting news! Yesterday, my family spotted two Monarch butterflies in the area. The first was outside my son's school. The 2nd was in our yard! It always helps to have Milkweed present. They can sniff it out from astounding distances.
Today, my daughter spotted another Monarch in the yard again on our Milkweed plants. I took a picture of it. (See photo below)
With all the tragic news I've heard recently about the overwintering populations having fallen by 50% or more this year, it is so good to see them coming through the area heading north to Canada.
