Sep 23rd - A Nice Surprise

This afternoon while watching butterfly and dragonfly migration over the backyard I got a nice surprise when this beautiful Bald Eagle flew through.


Also seen flying over was an American Kestrel and 2 local Turkey Vultures.

As for butterflies - between 12:30 - 4:00pm I counted 254 Monarchs flying overhead heading due west, 4 Cabbage Whites, and 5 Painted Ladies.  41 Monarchs landed in the back garden to nectar on various flowers.  Dragonflies filled the sky all afternoon.

Keep lookin' up!
