Monarch Butterflies in Regina

I often see Monarch Butterflies in Regina in the summer, although this year has been an exception, and so far, I've seen none. (I hope that's because I was travelling a lot, not because of the Monarch Butterfly declines I've read about.)

These pictures of Monarch Butterflies on Showy Milkweed were taken at Nature Regina's Native Plant Garden at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum. (The garden has several kinds of Milkweed, a plant that's essential for Monarch larva.)
