We spotted this large monarch on a weekend walk. It was one of two that we saw on Sunday. These fragile creatures are migrating south to Mexico, an amazing feat that they accomplish year after year.
Find out more about the monarch migration HERE. We have seen many more monarchs this summer than last summer. We have intentionally left milkweed growing on our lakeside property, just to nurture the Monarch.
Writer Barbara Kingsolver's latest novel, Flight Behavior, is about the Monarch migration and the impact of environmental change on an Appalachian family.
