Monarch Adult Sighted

It was 7:30pm (nearly sunset) and I had just started to do some selective mowing in an upper pasture, when this monarch mated pair flew past me and landed in the nearby tree. I had not seen a monarch since May 26th ~ but had not been very actively looking either. There are a lot of blooming slim milkweed (Asclepias linearis) and other nectar wildflowers (especially lemon beebalm flowers). Our main native milkweed, Asclepias viridis, is also abundant, with many of the plants in the seed pod stage, though there are also some fresh plants and flowering plants.

This sighting changed my mowing plans, and I will have to re-evaluate areas with milkweed and nectar plants. Glad the monarchs got my attention!
