Yesterday we made, what has become, our annual visit to Frontenac State Park. Several years ago we were hiking in the park and encountered an amazing number of Monarch Butterflies.

Now every year in the fall we make the trip the first week in September searching for butterflies. Last year the monarch numbers were down but we found a large number of swallowtails.

This year there were no swallowtails, a few fritillaries, and a few monarchs.
