and reports:
Beautiful Monarch Butterflies stop off for some honey from our purple African Queen summer lilacs (Buddleja Davidii) on their annual migration flight to Mexico and California. Viewing tip: an easy way to tell the difference between a Monarch butterfly and a Monarch moth, the butterfly holds its wings vertical when at rest while the moth holds its wings against its body. A butterfly’s antennae are club-shaped with a long shaft and a bulb at the end, while moth’s antennae are feathery or saw-edged.
