Nineteen Monarch butterflies were counted today.

Joining me today were - John, Gunnar, Hugh, Carol, Gary & Wei Li and their visiting relatives, Pat & Nancy, and Cori. Today we also had an afternoon shift which consisted of Betty, Berle and Allison.  My thanks to everyone for their participation and friendship.

Weather-wise, likely more of the same tomorrow as wind is predicted to be from the SW again.

Some of you who use Lee's Rosetta Facebook site might know a gentleman named Andre Tardif.  Andre was at Rosetta last weekend with his remote controlled quadcopter, or drone as they're known.  With an attached camera, these small drones now have the ability to shoot film from just about anywhere and at any angle.  This short 'teaser' that Andre kindly offers gives us bird lovers a brand new perspective, a bird's eye view of the Gardens.


Thankyou Andre for sharing this video.  We look forward to seeing the finished piece.  More of Andre's work can be found on YouTube by searching 'travelwithsally'.
