Again - number arbitrary. Every time I was in the garden from around 8:30 am until around 5 pm, butterflies were abundant (which was often, Iï¿½ve taken to having zoom meetings while working remotely, outside, weather permitting). Mostly monarchs, several pairs found mating, but also admirals, buckeyes, a few whites, and even sulfurs. An occasional dragonfly seen too. They continue to fly in from the ï¿½north. So surprised to see so many this late. Forgot to say in my last post, unlike many previous years where there were notably some (sometimes many) fatigued, worn-out butterflies as the season progressed, this year the population look incredibly healthy. Grateful that the tithonia has weathered some high winds and is still available to fuel them for their journey!
