Got Nectar?
Adult monarchs only live 2-6 weeks at this time of year, so energy is dedicated toward reproduction. What sources of nectar are available for monarchs where you live?

"My 5 year-old spotted our first monarch of the year, sipping nectar in our flowering crab tree. Five minutes later a second one joined in."
