Long Live The…

…Monarchs!
Individual butterflies seen recently. The last two I saw yesterday, along with three others un-photographed. They’re moving south across this western end of Long Island. They’ve got the Bay and the Bight to leap-fly across, and the long, long, improbable flight to Mexico to go.

    The migration of this particular species show just how backward and inefficient human endeavors are. Traveling from Nova Scotia to the middle of Mexico on not a thimbleful of nectar is more than impresive. It’s amazing.
