Congrats to coleup! Nice to know there are still Monarchs cats in the region. I've had none on my milkweed for the past two years. I saw four adults in my yard this summer but sadly no babies.

On Tuesday I hiked around a "natural area" near my home. Although it's located near an area with a rapidly growing population, I usually see a lot of leps. I got there a bit late, about 3:30 pm and the sun was playing hide and seek but still saw:
3 Orange Sulphers
2 Common buckeyes
2 Pearl Crescents
2 Variegated Frits
1 Viceroy

I couldn't get photos of them all. They were very active and flew when I got close. The Viceroy and one of the Fritillaries were puddling on the wet sand.

Overwhelmed? There's a lot to see here. Try starting at our homepage.
