This gorgeous Monarch butterfly hung around our yard most of yesterday. It might leave for a bit here and there but it always came back to feed on the white Zinnias.
Thank goodness we haven’t had a frost and I haven’t ripped out the flowers yet or it would have nothing to eat… and it’s a long way to Mexico. I just hope he got enough nourishment and survived last night’s storm to be on its way.
What a beautiful butterfly and to think it’s still here in November…
One thought on “Gorgeous Monarch Butterfly Still In Our Yard On Cape Cod.”
“…monarch butterflies, on their thousand-mile, multigenerational flight from Mexico to the Rocky Mountains, calculate due north using the position of the sun, which requires accounting for the time of day, the day of the year, and latitude;”
