Wowee gorgeous day again! 20c/68f. Breaking records!
11:30am-1:30pm. Full sunshine & light southerly wind @ 13kmh brought 18 Monarchs to the Tip of Point Pelee & beyond to continue their journey south to wherever it may be. First hour was slow with 3 arrivals but last hour increased to 15!
Same as prior day all arrived from the north & all but one arrived on West shoreline which was a touch calmer than east side. One arrived on east side & fought the wind before 3x trying west side & out it went.
There are still Asters & Knapweed. All though they'd have to search for those still in bloom.
So wired so determined to go south they arrived either 2'-5' up or 20' up & gained altitude as they continued south over Lake Erie.
To those who rear & hold them back..or keep as 'pets'....let them go be free to do what they're so determined to do...go south!
2 more days til daytime highs decrease to 10c or so.
