No Monarch here, but did see a Monarch previously at Point Pelee National Park in far southern Ontario.

Funny, I’ve seen Monarchs twice over the past week-and-a-half — on the Caribbean island of St. Maarten/St. Martin (July 11) - and then at Point Pelee; have yet to see one in the U.S.!

First time for me to see Giant Swallowtails in Canada; but interestingly, no other Swallowtails…
Just a solitary Monarch, and no Vanessa species…
One Duskywing; couldn’t identify to species.
