Collecting Trip Uno - Montrose Beach

The first excursion for the Insect World found us on a stunning day at Montrose Beach. Only six of us total (ahem) but that was fine - more insects for us!

Here a bee is enjoying some lovely flowers of early autumn - get in on it while you still can...

Monarch butterflies were around and about and we tagged and released a couple that we caught as part of the Monarch Watch program.

Speaking of the Lepidoptera, caterpillars were in large numbers, be they spiny or smooth:

And of course the crooners of the season, annual cicadas....


And the odd butterfly here or there ~
