Some End of Summer Sights

Like it or not, it appears that the days of summer weather are coming to an end.   However this is a great time to get out and watch for migrants during pleasant fall days.

I haven't had time to post a lot, but here is what has been around in wildlife lately.

I've been seeing quite a few yellow garden spiders around.
Monarchs aren't the only caterpillars that like milkweed.  The milkweed tussock moth larvae does too.
This year is the first that I have seen a cecropia moth caterpillar.  The adult moth is a stunning insect

This year is the first that I have been tagging monarchs.  It will be interesting to see if any are recovered in Mexico.
