my yard Petersburg

Wandered the yard around mid-day and then around 4:30 which is when the long-tailed sk was present. I had 20+ monarchs on each of my trips through the yard; Mexican sunflower was the favorite today. As the log has been showing, there are exceptional numbers of monarchs and ocolas.
