While mowing the back yard this evening my Husband saw a fatigued Monarch. He came to get me. She was hanging onto a blade of grass. I picked a gourd leaf for her. I picked her and her blade of grass and moved her to the Marigolds.
She is alive, we hope she is just very tired. Maybe she can get some rest tonight. I will replenish the Butterfly feeders tomorrow. I have never cared for a tired butterfly before. Hope I am doing the right thing. Food and shelter and a caring heart is all I know to give. We are Dragonfly Suites and Spa, a safe haven for weary travelers. May she rest well.
