Here's a story I heard on NPR just yesterday about the diminishing numbers of monarch butterflies.

The Monarchs Were Missing This Summer and We and Weather are to Blame

Do Painted Ladies migrate?

We had plenty of these shy butterflies earlier, but the one I've been photographing the last couple of days is one of the last of the season. Haven't seen many monarchs either, which I don't understand, because nobody has made any wholesale changes in agricultural methods in my neck of the woods. There are still many, many uncut fields and weedy roadsides full of milkweed, which nobody has been spraying with anything.

We have had a very strange summer and that might be a reason also.

Gorgeous, gorgeous!

I have heard that there are a lot of painted ladies this year, but few monarchs. (in the monarch's case, culprit being Monsanto's 'Roundup ')

About Nikongranny


Old, retired with lots of time on my hands and a Nikon. Lucky for me, there is a park just north of town that provides me with migrating birds and sunsets. Since joining this site, I have a new appreciation for this scenic world we live in. I especially love the comments from so many great people on here.
