A cloud of monarchs
|Monarch nectaring on aromatic aster a couple of years ago|
There were multiple monarchs visiting her Buddleia yesterday and the day before.
I was going to report my sightings on Journey North and realized my registration still has me in Clemson, SC, so I didn't. Perhaps they were roosting here overnight, then nectaring for a while, before heading south.
Interestingly, perhaps the wave of migrating monarchs is passing through more of the mountains this year.
In any case, here was the current Journey North map: click to connect to their website.
They're a wonderful organization promoting real-time observations from folks of all ages, from schoolchildren to citizen scientists.
