Of interest - Jackie R, who found and photographed one of our tagged Monarchs on the Toronto Islands a few weeks back came out to visit us at Rosetta today.  She wanted to meet Terry and Betty, watch a few butterflies get tagged and released, enjoy the gardens, and also visit with us along the fence watching for hawks.  This afternoon after leaving Rosetta Jackie was down at Woodbine Beach and low and behold, found and photographed another one of our Monarchs!  Monarch 'WPA 255' was tagged and released at the park today at 11:05am!  Thankyou Jackie, the Rosetta gang enjoyed meeting you today!

WPA 255 was photographed at Woodbine Beach today,
the same day that it was tagged at Rosetta! (Jackie)

Kevin, Dave, Dan, Ron, Jean, Hugh, Terry, Betty, and a few others who stopped by to say 'hello'.

Was happy to see Walter and company while in T.O.

Too bad the birds weren't flying.

Cheers,
Dan
