It’s been a great year for monarchs, at least in the meadows I’ve been walking in. That is particularly good news because of the dire predictions about the monarch population that surfaced a few years ago. From what I’ve read, monarchs are more plentiful this year on both their summer and winter grounds. Let’s hope that trend continues for this iconic species.

Here’s a monarch all covered in pollen.
