The colorful Monarch butterflies are back on Cape Cod. They search for Milkweed plants to feed on which Cape Cod has plenty of. I saw this Monarch while hiking at Fort Hill in Eastham a couple of days ago.
Monarch butterflies are just beautiful with orange above with black veins and white spotted margins. Below is more of a yellow-orange color. The head and body ate black with white spots.
This Monarch was feeding on a Milkweed plant out in the field. You can see his beautiful coloring. Have you seen a Monarch this summer?
