Journey North

Remember my post about monarchs?

Well, I found another site that I thought was interesting and worthy of note:

Journey North: A Global Study of Wildlife Migration and Seasonal Change
On that site you can find out a lot more about Monarchs than you probably want to know.

The most recent news is that a cold front on the 2nd of October contributed to many more Monarchs traveling through my area.

Friday and Saturday I saw quite a few Monarchs but not to the "fill-the-sky" extent I described in that previous post. I would still like to see that again.

In other personal news our Jet appears much better and is a little upset with us that he cannot rejoin his comrades. But he has a few more days of medicine and there is still some alfalfa hay out there in the big corral. I want to wait until all of it is gone which will not be much longer. I think he is allergic.

Our cat seems to be ill now though, or maybe she's hurt. I think a male cat attacked her.

beautiful butterfly. I found it interesting that the Monarch has the longest life span of butterflies. Still though, a year is a short time to live.

Glad to hear that Jet is better. Now I'll start the chant:
Free Jet
