In 2013, I saw a White M Hairstreak here in the yard on my canna leaves but since then nary a sighting Just now I saw a small butterfly on the rotten fruit but it was with 2 other butterflies so I couldn't ID with my bins. Out, I went and to my great surprise, it was a White M Hairstreak on the rotten fruit. These area a rarely seen butterfly here.

The past few days have been the most incredible of my butterflying life. Back on 10/18, the butterfly numbers started to grown in my yard. I have had up to 18 species but the Monarch's started to come and have just increased in numbers every day. It has been amazing. I believe that there are more than 500 butterflies in my yard. Each evening the have been roosting on both my canna plants and in my Cherry tree. The light isn't good enough to get pictures in the Cherry tree but these are pictures of the canna's tonight before sunset as the Monarch were still getting set-up for the night.
