With monarchs being relatively scarce this year I was surprised to find this individual hanging around a patch of milkweed. I plan to return to this spot and check for eggs.
Common whitetail dragonflies were the dominant dragonfly of the afternoon.
Continuing on down the lane, I passed several wet patches that proved to be excellent buffets for the butterflies.
The tall grass also held numerous insects.

I saw and heard a wide variety of bird species today, but only got one half decent photo, a young wood duck.
