Along the bike path there were hundreds of Monarchs (with a few other butterflies) on the masses of flowers on the Japanese Knotweed. I don't know how to reconcile my animosity to this invasive as a member of the land stewardship crew at the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center and the plant's obvious attractiveness to Lepidoptera.
