I went for a hike today at a local park in eastern Kansas. It was a beautiful day! Wildflowers including sunflowers and aster were everywhere. Monarch were numerous, flying through the blue skies and nectaring on wildflowers. I saw 100 in my first 45 minutes and 1.4 miles of hiking. I saw a a grand total of 145 Monarchs in 2 hours and 25 minutes and 3.5 miles of hiking. I took many photos, but this photo with the purple aster was my favorite.
