Many circling the garden and nectaring on blue mist flower and milkweed.
They were seen all at once. The ones in the picture were on flowers. The others were floating above me. I guessed on the amount, at least another 6 to 10 above. It was like they all dropped from the sky. It was about 1:30 pm.
They are still hanging around today (9/30), nectaring on butterfly bushes, rose of sharon,and others - not just milkweed and blue mist flower. We have a south wind, so they will probably stay put until the wind changes.
