I have been hanging out with a real rough and tumble group this week tagging Monarch butterflies. This is part of a migration study with the University of Kansas. You can find out more on their website. You can see the tiny sticker we place on them in the shot above, between the two thumbs. I enjoy working with a number of groups and have done this since 1992. They migrate to Mexico for the winter. Their numbers have dwindled in the last few years, their winter area has been disrupted with agriculture, logging and bad weather.
