I spotted this Monarch Butterfly on Ward's Island when I was there. He was fluttering back and forth from blossom to blossom probably gathering nutrition for his flight to Mexico. There seem to be a lot of Monarchs around this year which is a good sign that all of the milkweed being planted is having an effect since it is the favoured host plant for these guys. This one has a bit of damage on the tip of his right wing so I hope he makes a successful journey.
