|The Monarchs reported in Peak Migration (October 6) did not remain on flowers overnight. At 22:00 I found about 100 in small roosts plus a few more of 1 to 5 individuals. Temp at sunset was around 70. When I check had dropped to between 60 and 65.
There are 47 in this image on under side of canopy of a large Ashe Juniper. There were a few more on this tree, out of frame. This was the largest group I found, but I didn't try to find all of them. Flash is harsh but time was 21:59 so no choice.
