I've read the comments, but not any articles about it, Rodney! Have a hard time understanding; we have plenty of milkweed around here and I don't know of any reason we shouldn't have the usual number of monarchs. I don't think there has been any wholesale change in methods of agriculture in my neck of the woods. Plenty of abandoned fields and roadsides that nobody sprays with anything.

Journey North, an American group that adds up migration observations from the public, estimates that monarch numbers have fallen 80 per cent from 2012.
Glad you got this one on camera.

I just heard on the radio that this year is the lowest level of monarchs to migrate north ever. Three factors: Mexican habitat, US habitat due to herbicide use by agribusiness, and extreme weather in US.

Thanks, Marijka! This one was sure a lot easier to photograph than the painted lady! Wasn't skittish at all.
