Top of a bald grassy knoll. Milkweed and goldenrod at the base. I could see about 10 monarchs flying around a large blue spruce tree at the top. They were flighty around the top, landing and lifting again. It was hard to see them once they landed. The tree is 30+ feet tall. Temp was 57 degrees, wind was 2mph with gusts to 4mph. In this image, you can see 5 of the butterflies to the right of the spruce.
