Nectering on Frostweed along Guadalupe River at Kruetzberg Canyon Natural Area between 11a and 12p
I had looked for them at 9:15 and did not see any.
This was a direct count by 2 people. I'm sure there may have been more.
The monarchs were observed nectaring along probably less than a 1/4 mile of river. 2 areas divided by a small canyon. From the water and up the incline from 60 to 80 feet
There was very little flying. The flying was over the frostweed. They were all nectering.
There was a large patch of blooming cow pen daisy. They were not nectaring on it.
I went down to the river area at 9a and could not find any monarchs. A totally different situation when we went back at 11a.
