The Monarchs Are Here

The Monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus) have arrived once again in Tulsa.  They are on their annual migration south to Mexico for the winter.

I discovered these in Tulsa’s River Parks this morning.  They were reluctant to pose for photos, intent on the nectar found on these wildflowers (goldenrod?).

Buen viaje a Mexico! Nos vemos en la primavera!

  1. We’ve seen several in our garden in the last few days and my kids are thrilled! They are so beautiful. I am so glad I decided to have some butterfly friendly plants put in the garden!
