Monarchs are stopping by in large numbers (for me, anyway)! Tonight after work there were 12 on the white bush (still in full sun) and 8 on the purple bushes (shaded) - all at the same time. It is exciting to know that they are stocking up on calories for the trip south to Mexico! I love how they look against the evening sunlight shining through the the trees.
