The boys learned tons from the seminar and loved the butterfly hunt afterward. We saw 2 Monarchs, several Viceroy, and lots of Sulfur butterflies. Only one member of the group managed to catch a Monarch and since we were still out hunting butterflies, we missed the tag and release.
Even though we didn't catch a Monarch, we had a wonderful time and the boys are attempting to catch butterflies on a daily basis. Our new butterfly nets are getting a lot of use!
|The hunt is on!|
|FRitW is a very good at catching butterflies.|
|I am pretty sure this is a Great Spangled Fritillary|
