Monarch butterfly closeup

We first noticed Monarch butterflies passing through about a week ago.

This guy showed up today running a little behind schedule.

When I was at the Nature Center we had a really pretty butterfly come through on October. I don't remember what kind, but I remember looking at it's distribution map and finding that it only lived in the deep south. I asked our butterfly guy, Larry, why it was here and he said "It's going south for the winter."

"But if it lives in Georgia..."

"Yeah. Sometimes they get lost."

That poor little butterfly bothered me for weeks, so far off track he was hundreds of miles north in Tennessee instead of over Mexico!
