All hail – the Queen has finally returned. This is the first monarch butterfly I have seen this season, it was last Thursday on the Rose Point Trail. Despite the thousands of milkweed plants along the trail, there have been no monarch’s to date, which is very unusual. I hope we will see more. She’s resting on a Spotted Joe-Pye Weed (Eutrochium maculatum). (July 2013)
