intersection of Rosco and Russian Rd Orange Beach and Ft Morgan
Baldwin County, AL

Went looking for Whites today, temps started in the low 40s and was not expected to get any warmer than upper 50s, no problem finding host plants. There were no Whites, but good numbers of our fall visitors. Ft Morgan was holding dozens of Monarchs, and in the late afternoon the were soring among the tree tops looking for places to roost.
