My good friend Eric Peterson had hundreds of monarchs fly over his yard yesterday during a good fall migration day. About 50 monarchs settled in to nectar in his prairie at about 5pm, along with a viceroy and 2 red admirals. My family and I rushed over to snap a few pictures. Well, more like dozens of pictures. Here are some of our favorites.
Eric's yard is amazing! False Boneset and stiff goldenrod are in peak bloom. His nearby pine tree served as a resting place for about 20-30 monarchs that night.
