I live where most of the northern monarchs gather before migration.  Years ago, I would find cottonwood trees so covered in monarchs it looked like fall color.  But recent years there have been very few.

Until this year.  I have seen more just floating around all summer.  But now I am starting to see them gather.  More than I have seen in at least ten years.  There are hundreds in my back yard, and yesterday there were hundreds in the trees around my fat girl pen.

So....are other parts of the country seeing more monarchs?  It is deinfitely time for a fall trail ride looking for gather trees.

Not so much monachs but lots more hummingbirds than in the last 5 years or so.  Gives me some hope.
LOVE the picture.

Maybe a dozen or so Monarchs around my butterfly tree, most in years.

  There are people in our County that raise Monarch's, and release them.
