Decline of Monarch Butterflies?


Afternoon folks…has anyone seen any Monarch Butterflies yet this summer? I have yet to see one.


Mourning Cloak


Morning folks…was out photographing all day yesterday and it was one great day here in New England! Photographed my first butterfly the year, a Mourning Cloak. Mourning Cloaks are one of the few butterflies that overwinter. Instead of dying or flying South, they stay here year-round. Mourning Cloaks do hibernate, they will find a tree cavity, or crawl underneath some loose bark to give us a jump start on enjoying Spring….Happy


Eastern Tiger Swallowtail


Evening folks…how's about something to remind us spring is around the corner. This is an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail and is is one of the most familiar butterflies in the eastern United States. This has been such a dreary week here in New England nice to see something colorful!

Everyone have a great weekend!
