This is the first monarch I've seen this year in my yard, It was refueling on tall goldenrod around 4 PM. It was 80 degrees and mostly sunny. Winds were 7 MPH.
Last year, a couple of monarchs were refueling in the goldenrod every day from 10/8/21 through 10/15/21. I hope more will visit in the days ahead, but we're going to drop down into the 30s at night in about 2 days and have our first frost in three.
