First for Minnesota!
Student Kelly Okerman reported the first monarch for her state. Do you think it flew to Minnesota from Mexico? Or is it a new monarch of the first generation?
"The colors were vibrant—that is what caught my eye in the first place. However, they are probably not as clear as in the picture. I had a color defining lens on my camera at the time. The orange was more of a burnt orange color than in the picture. I don't remember its left wing being torn. It was flying fine, so I assume that it didn't have a problem," she noted.
