Butterfly sighting

Sep 2 2008

Location: Pewaukee (my backyard garden with Torch sunflowers)
Waukesha County

Torch sunflowers have relatively small but very bright, orange blossoms that attract butterflies, especially Monarchs, and bees, as the attached photos demonstrate. A week later (9/9/08), the bumble bees are still in the garden but, no butterflies other than a cabbage white or two. NOTE: The smaller of the 2 Monarch caterpillars I am raising in the house molted on 9/2/08. Photo of Monarch caterpillar just after molting attach
