Butterfly sighting

Location: Aldo Leopold Nature Center
Dane County

I was surprised to see so many Monarchs still here. They were by far the dominant butterfly at the nature center today. Warm temperatures (80F), light breeze at 3 p.m. Plenty of nectar sources still, including various Asters. There were many more butterflies than my count, but I saw at least this many as I was taking photos of late-blooming plants.
