A couple of dozen late flutters flew over Fire Island, NY, last week on warm thermals. Luckily I left up pens of tithonia, zinnias, and dahlia nectar flowers. A guest hitched a ride somewhere on my hair or clothing while I was cutting down milkweed. (see attached photo) To my surprise, I have a very late 4G Monarch soon to emerge. I named it "Democracy" in honor of our US Presidential election. I'll keep you posted!
