Mariners Trail, Manitowoc to Two Rivers

First real push of migrating Monarchs along Lake Michigan. Cool temps around 60 degrees and very scattered showers didn’t seem to bother them as I watched five flyby in the rain. This was the highest number of Painted Ladies I have seen in a decade.

  • Cabbage White 1
  • Painted Lady 8
  • Monarch 43
