Monarch butterfly on dried Queen Anne's Lace
Yesterday I was surprised to see this Monarch out and about (I'd thought they'd all gone a while ago to Mexico!) and even more surprised to see it land on dried weeds. I guess maybe it was tired and needed to rest because for sure there was no nectr there.
But there's still some nectar in the area. Not a LOT, but SOME.
Wooly Bear caterpillar
This is my second Wooly Bear of the season. I spotted the first on my porch, the second here on a beach. I hope it knew it was far too cool for a swim.
Can you see the critter on the fluff. It's in danger of being blown away.
