Mr Monarch defying the strong wind gusts

October 30, 2019


A male monarch visited the garden on Sunday while we were experiencing strong wind gusts.

It was after nectar, and was not going to be deterred by some wind.


The blossoms on the blackberry hedge are very popular with all of the pollinators right now, and the monarch was going to get its share of nectar.













When the gusts were especially strong, the monarch clung to the blossoms, adjusting its wings to the air currents.












Here the monarch is uncoiling its proboscis to sip nectar from the blossoms.
