A late-ish Monarch Butterfly

I found this beautiful Monarch Butterfly late this afternoon at Blue Lake (aka Adobe Creek on maps). According to, peak in Monarch abundance during migration should be the end of September at the latitude of Blue Lake (though that is an extrapolation since 38 degrees latitude is not specified). It was flitting around the tamarisks, an invasive plant, that ring the shore. It seemed to be settling-in for the night. SeEtta
