I am working on being at the sanctuary several times a week to monitor the weather, humidity, etc as well as which trees the monarchs are on that day and how the numbers look. Who knows what that info might show or not show.
Even though we are very early in the season, i am meeting upwards of 50 people some days that have traveled to see the monarchs. I hate that some of them can only travel once and it is too early to enjoy the full aspect of all the monarchs being here that will happen in about a month. And that says nothing about all the visitors that come to the sanctuary when i am not there and there are no docents or anyone to show them where the monarchs are clustering. They 99 percent of the time will walk right by them because everyone comes expecting to see orange but the wings are not open like this but closed. And they are a beige, muted color which look like dead leaves. Oh, well. All i can do is post pics and hope they will go online to check them out.
