  2. It's the same up here.

    I've seen one worn female, probably a migrant, and have heard of only one other positive i.d. in the province. Any milkweeds I've checked showed no signs of caterpillar activity. I miss them.

    Cheers,

    Larry

    That's a pretty shot Arnie and a pretty butterfly. I wish we had those.

  12. Great capture Arnie. The monarchs, swallowtails and skippers have been scarce this summer. I finally had a few visitors yesterday. I think the late frost in my area (near the end of May) did a lot of damage. I hope the numbers begin to pick up soon.
     
  13. Same here. No caterpillars on the milkweed either. No tiger swallowtails. Weird.

    Yours is a very nice shot.
