I was up at our property in Bracebridge (2 hours north of Toronto) on the weekend. Our driveway is lined with goldenrod. I first spotted a monarch feeding on the goldenrod and when I looked closer saw between 10-15 feeding. Those were the most monarchs I've seen in one place at one time this summer. I didn't have my net with me, but I managed to hand catch 5 to tag. (I didn't have any more of my tags up there with me
I believe these were migrating monarchs and it was on the 5th of September which is our middle date for migration.
It was quite exciting to see!
I still have 85 chrysalis' at home waiting to emerge. Most should be out within the next week.
