Another Monarch Passes Through

It seems as if there were a lot fewer butterflies in our area this summer. So this past week when we noticed this year's first Monarch visiting our Princeton Landing garden on its journey south, we were delighted. Ironically, it was the same day the Association had TruGreen spraying the community for the entire day. This not only made it difficult to spend time outside, but it also made it impossible to walk on the grass to photograph the Monarch. Luckily, the lantana plants on our deck and in our atrium brought the butterfly in close enough for pictures.

Two days later another Monarch passed through and was still feeding on our deck at sunset. Here are a couple of photos of our latest Monarch.
