Monarch on Mexican Sunflower

Posted on Aug 3, 2015

I spotted this Monarch (Danaus plexippus) butterfly feeding on this Mexican Sunflower (Tithonia Rotundifolia) earlier today. I don’t know about you but I have been spotting Monarchs more frequently in the last week or so. Have you had any in your yard yet, or are you also seeing high numbers recently? Let us hope we have a huge fall migration coming up.
