You may recall that I mentioned seeing a cluster of Monarchs there, in my blog post of 11 May.
Sure enough there they were. Monarchs in the trees (mainly the Totara and Rimu trees, but also Pohutukawa), Monarchs flying and gliding - what a glorious sight.
I counted at least 30, however would guess there might have been almost as many again that I couldn't see. I also noticed some enjoying nectar from flowers in the nearby library garden, while two wafted across the large public car park to the rear.
Click click click went my camera. How very beautiful they all looked together.
