Monarchs in Cape May

When I was in Cape May last week, the Monarch migration was not quite as spectacular as a week or two earlier, when thousands were counted as they left Cape May Point. Besides an apparent reduction in numbers, the Monarchs had to compete for my attention with the eleventy-billion Common Buckeyes around the state park, as well as numerous other species. Still, there were plenty of Monarchs around Cape May's gardens and natural areas.

This Monarch went deep into a flower to find some nectar.
