There are still plenty of flowers in the garden for butterflies to feast on. As summer winds down it seems we have more butterflies in the garden than usual. Of course we see plenty of red admiral butterflies but the migrating monarch butterflies are also stopping in for a snack.
Monarch butterflies fly incredible distances to their hibernation location, for instance in Mexico. Some will fly more than 2,000 miles from Canada to their roosting sites in Mexico. It’s incredible to think these beautiful fragile creatures are capable of such travels.
