Late Monarch

I was wondering the exact same thing when I saw a Monarch flutter by in
Gahanna Ohio (central Ohio) just yesterday (Nov 6).  Relatively mild,
sunny afternoons yesterday and today allowed the monarch, as well as a
few Cabbage Whites, Clouded Sulphurs, a Buckeye, and an unidentified
dark skipper to fly around in several of the parks in Gahanna.  We've
already had several hard frosts, and virtually all of the flowers are
gone, so its difficult to imagine how these butterflies will fare over
the next week, even if the weather holds.  It's certainly uplifting to
see butterflies in the midwest in November.
