This a photo of one of the monarchs nectaring from a yellow thistle that I mentioned in my 03/30/2019 Monarch Adult Sighted report.
A misty light rain was starting, but this slightly tattered male monarch seemed to find this nectar-rich yellow thistle just that much more enticing. I am glad he could fill up, because a cold front was about to come through shortly, taking temperatures into the low 50's with nighttime lows of 32 degrees F for the next couple of days.
