Also wanted to send a quick update on the butterfly photo from last week. Unfortunately that picture is of a Viceroy butterfly not a Monarch. It looks a lot like a Monarch and uses this to it's advantage. Monarch's taste bad due to the fact that they live on milkweed. The Viceroy does not taste bad but since it looks like a Monarch many of its would be predators don't eat it either.
I've included a picture from the internet which shows the difference between the two. We would be eager to hear if people are seeing Monarch's in the area.
