Plantation Rd Gulf Shores
Baldwin County, AL

On 10/15 the majority of the larger butterflies were Gulf Fritillary and they were abundant. Then on 10/18 the majority was,and now is Monarchs. I knew they were going to be thick because the night before when returning home I found a Monarch on the wall next to my front door. A very nice surprise for the day was a Southern Oak Hairstreak was also sighted.
