Definitely one handsome guy! Another good day for flying. I had the chance to launch butterflies with some of my patients today. I hope the Monarchs brightened their day in some small way! At the very least, it got them outside in the fresh air for a few minutes.
Steve tagged and released 70 butterflies here at home...sheesh! He's my hero! He said it took him about 2 hours. This looks to be the last of the big waves of Monarchs for us this season. Oh, they are still coming, just not in such large numbers, all at once. The time consuming, daily care of the larvae has decreased greatly as there are not as many.
As of today, 795 Monarchs have been tagged and released. Woohoo!!!
