That's pretty good-good to  know.  No snouts in my area.  Some blues coppers and crescents and 1 Great spangled.
I like that about the hummingbird-saw similar incidents in my wild area.  The hummers seemed oblivious however.

The butterfly experience in our yard near the Maumee River has been different. We have had at least 14 species visit our butterfly garden and 6 others have been elsewhere in the yard. Most common by far is Silver-spotted skipper (max of 17 at one time), but yesterday (9/17) there were 5 Painted ladies at once in the garden and 3 American snouts in the goldenrod meadow. It is interesting to watch the SS skippers as they are quite aggressive: they chase each other, other butterflies, and even hummingbirds away from the flowers!

Interestingly Monarchs have been the most common sighting for me too.  Exception to other low numbers is silver spotted skippers which are at usual numbers.

Yes, the counts of butterflies has been extremely low this year. Personally I have seen quite a few monarchs over the past few weeks, certainly more than I did last year. But virtually every other butterfly number seem to be down.

The number of butterflies  seem very low this year; low swallowtails, no frittillaries, some monarchs, low skippers, yellows, no admirals,  etc.  Is this observed by others or is it just my imagination.
