First monarch of the season Aug. 31

Alas, though, I have no photograph to prove my first sighting of a monarch (female) yesterday. The memory card in my camera malfunctioned, and I lost the shots. The monarch flew off and didn't return. Instead, here are some queens that also dined on our blue mistflower yesterday (Conoclinium coelestrinum) that's been blooming. Other insects love the flowers, too.

Hurrah! When I didn't see any this spring I was pretty worried.

Beautiful queens, Sheryl. I thought I might have seen a Monarch several days ago, but of course, when I grabbed my camera and made it back outdoors, it was gone!
