Stayed on the island today; visited most of the usual spots. The Monarchs have just about become the dominant true butterfly; and it has taken only few days; the Gulf Fritillary is still in top spot, Common Buckeyes rounding out 3rd. Last year it was difficult to find the Painted Ladies; the Americans where every where; not so this year. The American Ladies are very sparse this year, Today’s sighting were diverse.
