Monarch Butterfly - Danaus plexippus

I saw eight Monarch Butterflies, one Great Golden Digger Wasp
and three Giant Honeybees (apis dorsata)at this site.

Moved from Butterflies.

A. dorsata?
Really. So when did 'that' species arrive (from Asia presumably), and how come it isn't making headlines? I'm sure you mean Apis mellifera....

A fun photo!
Kenny would like this one.
