A little urban butterflying today. Three of the Painted Ladies and the two Monarchs were nectaring on some aster plants for sale outside of Shopko. They found the 3 or 4 aster plants tucked in a corner among a sea of chrysanthemums, which they ignored. The other two Painted Ladies were on some aster bushes outside of Odana Antiques. And the Cabbage White was just flying across the road at a busy intersection.
