Monarch Watch Tagging: It's that time of year again!

I caught three monarchs, which is rather a miracle in itself since the numbers have been so dreadfully low and prior to this, we only saw one or two total this summer. 

Out comes the tag.  We buy these tags from Monarch Watch.  You can't just go sticking your own tags on them.  

Ready to go, go, go to Mexico!

But not this cicada.  It wanted in on the fun, but I had to explain that we were counting Monarchs and not cicadas.

We've all been noticing the dearth monarchs this year. It's left us all so sad. :o(

Poor cicada. Do you know the Sandra Boyton Book, "But Not the Hippopotamus?" How about, but not the cicada? ;o)
