So far this year, I’ve only seen a couple tiger swallow tails. I’ve not seen any monarchs. Last year, I only saw a couple of monarchs. I’m really worried about these larger butterflies. There can be no doubt that they are in decline, at least here in Maryland. I don’t usually plug charities on Beautiful Photographs, but I can’t help but put in a word for the Monarch Butterfly Fund.
I find the floral comparisons to be more striking than anything else.
