Today’s Monarch Fact of the Day

The Concord Monitor from Concord, New Hampshire talks about a “bumper year” for Monarch Butterflies in New Hampshire. ‘Bumper year’ for monarch butterflies in New Hampshire, but will it last?

    1. I actually feel a sort of exhiliration when I actually see a Monarch butterfly. I hope this will inform me as to the actual time period they make their migration through my region. From the data I suspect it may have actually been in August. The first day I recorded numbers I saw 9. Besides all that doing this keeps me out of mischief!

      1. Yes indeed. The devil does find use for idle hands. LOL How do you make sure you don’t count the same monarch twice? I think I’ve gotten fairly adept at telling one from the other. Some may have tattered wings, or be very large, etc. But I’m sure there are times when I photograph the same butterfly multiple times while thinking I’ve captured different ones.

      2. I try to spread out my observations enough that I don;t count the same twice. When i see two at once of course I know I have seen two distinct specimens. I read an article recently about a look alike and meant to include it in the fact of the day, but I lost track of where I saw it.
