Update: Sep 23, 2017
Three more Monarchs hatched out this morning. The one on Steeplebush Spiraea tomentosa was the easiest to photograph.
Another one on Meadowsweet Spiraea alba.
One more under a huge Morning Glory leaf.
Grand total of Monarchs this morning – 18. None of them stayed more than 2 minutes, this one grabbed at a flower on the Butterfly Bush before heading south-west.
Still a few flowers left, Elm-leaf Goldenrod, Tall Boneset which the Monarchs seem to favor, New England Aster and some deep purple Salvia. All the fall flowers bloomed early this year.
One last Monarch chrysalis on Aster, still green.
