Hello, I hope you are both well!
We’ve seen quite a few Monarchs today. I’ve been worried because we haven’t seen very many migrating through this month, but perhaps they are taking a slightly different path this year. The Monarchs are stopping at our Texas Rock Rose, Pavonia lasiopetala, even when the flowers are closing at end-of-day. Weather is warm, 80 degrees, partly cloudy, wind SSW

Thank you and best wishes!

Dear Ellen,
Thanks for sending in your wonderful images of a male Monarch.  His scent patches are visible in the flight image.  We were treated to witnessing a Monarch flying past the Washington Monument this past weekend while we were away from the office traveling with Journalism students.
