One of the times I was at the garden this last weekend, I spotted this monarch butterfly and started taking photos of it. That's when I noticed it had some sort of tag on it. The message gave an email address so I emailed a photo of the butterfly and stated that I had seen it. I was thinking that it was some sort of monarch tracking. I got a return email on Tuesday and found out that there was a study done at the Desert Botanical Garden with some monarch butterflies and this was one of them. They didn't say anything more about the study so I have no idea what they were looking for. I would guess it was something about their migration. So, the only thing I can conclude is that if the study was recent, this little guy hasn't strayed very far. If the study was a while ago, maybe this guy has come back.
