Less Monarchs

From now until October you will see less Monarchs in the fields and meadows.

Internal Clock?

At some point, according to an internal clock perhaps; the monarch butterflies begin to migrate.  It wasn’t until the mid-70’s that anyone knew where.

They Fly to Mexico

Then, the August 1976 cover story in National Geographic proclaimed they had found out where.  One location the butterflies migrate in 100’s of thousands is Angangueo, Mexico.

He changed his vantage point several times, looking for a window of opportunity to strike.

Happy as a Clam at Sugar Creek

Last Thursday afternoon I got a text from my husband asking if I had plans for the night.  He was asked to go walleye fishing after work.  I replied, nope.  No plans, but go I’ll make some now.  It was a very warm day and we had an extreme amount of rain earlier in the week, so I knew the creeks would be running. Late in the day makes a wonderful time to play in the water happy as a clam with a tripod and camera.
