monarch1Friends, normally you find monarch butterflies all over the Northwestern corner of Wisconsin, but this year they have been  scarce  in Crex.  So i took a little trip south to Fish Lake Refuge on Thursday and in my wanderings, was able to find eight of these on the abundant blazing star flowers.  Maybe the second hatch has been successful or my friend, Agogo is releasing a sustaining population.  I like the little slash of orange contributed by the backlight on this particular butterfly.  Not sure that i like the color scheme, pink and orange, but i like the bokeh. til Tomorrow MJ
