Monarch Butterfly

(Toledo, OH) I have seen only a few monarch butterflies this year, and I was beginning to wonder if this year's populations were down. Even my bright-colored zinnias, sunflowers, and marigolds failed to attract much in the way of Lepidoptera specimens.

The various black-eyed Susans in my yard, however, proved to be the flowers that brought around the monarchs. Glad to see that they are still around, and that I need not worry about cashing in mortgage life insurance on these insects.
