King of Butterflies

Several folks from the Baltimore Bird Club were in Buzzy's Country Store yesterday having just returned from visiting Smith Island click here and scroll to Apr 14

When I asked one of them what had they seen that had impressed, a nice lady commented "A Monarch Butterfly."  

Not too up to speed on my butterfly-ology*, I did a little research click here and found that the Monarch (left) is indeed the "King of Butterflies." 

(*Daughter Reagan is my butterfly expert but she's on a cruise ship to Bermuda 'til mid-week.  Hence, I'll have to wait for her input.)
