This is always a fun meeting! Club members have 5-10 minutes to show photos or to tell about memorable butterfly (and other insect) encounters from the year. We have a laptop and projector, so just bring your flash drive. The coordinator is Dan Hardy, [masked].
(Ignore the "Closed" sign on the building. We meet inside.)

I've had hundreds of Queens and lots of eggs that, if I didn't bring them inside, (aquariums) would be eaten by the next day. Thought it was ants but saw one of the red wasps systematically going up and down each leaf.
I have a question about the current wave of Queens, Soldiers, and Monarchs. Over the last 6 weeks I have seen hundreds of these butterflies visit my yard (mist flowers) but I also have three kinds of milkweeds close by but not one egg or caterpillar this year. Usually these plants are completely stripped by now. Maybe these are the males and the females will come down later in the season?
