Hello again, the Monarch migration has begun here in central Texas. Just like last year, the butterflies stop to drink water droplets after our sprinkler has watered the lawn.
We need rain badly, although we are not under drought restrictions due to record-setting rains last spring. The weather is otherwise wonderful, 80 degrees and clear, with a light breeze. Here is a link to the current sightings:
The monarchs remind me of fall leaves floating through the air and settling on the grass.
Your female Monarch is lovely. We hope she visited the milkweed and laid some eggs for you to watch. Monarchs do have such a lazy way of flying that we often marvel they are able to fly so many miles when they migrate.
