Many Compton Tortoiseshell butterflies appeared during a sudden warm spell this week. They are looking for crevices to cocoon in over the winter season.

A Northern Blue (Lycaeides idas) on Star of Bethlehem flowers is still one of my favourite butterflies. They were rare this past Spring due to heavy rains here.

Informative article by David Suzuki. I did notice more Monarchs this year as David noted in our area of Eastern Ontario, and tons of Painted Ladies too. We have an abundance of bugs - all shapes and sizes. The only real decline I noticed here was lack of domesticated honey bees this summer. Must check to see how the Amish fared with their honey bee hives.
