Yesterday DH noticed streams of monarch butterflies flying by - but only a couple of hundreds... It has been years since they went through here in the thousands! He got some photos yesterday but hasn't downloaded them yet. We had a late start this morning so I'm not sure how many rested in the heptacodium tree overnight, and there were only a couple in the tree or flying around by the time we were out walking Cole close to 10:00. DH then went walking along the Lake where he saw a few more but still only 10 or so in gardens by the path. They are so pretty but it is sad that their numbers are down so low - last year was even worse!
A few (disappointing!) pictures from the garden this morning:
Are you on the migration route? What are you seeing re their numbers this year?
