Monarchs return, dragonflies hatch, bears roam
It was the morning of June 1 this year when I saw my first monarch butterfly of 2018. And, not just one but two when I saw a second beauty later in the day.
Called by some the greatest natural living wonder of the world, it is amazing to see their return. The last you or I may have seen one was probably last September or October. Then they were probably in a flock, roosting in a grove of trees overnighIt was the morning of June 1 this year when I saw my first monarch butterfly of 2018.

Roadkill bobcat near Highwater Creek no surprise
A couple weeks ago someone reported to Conservation Officer (C.O.) Dustin Miller they had spotted a roadkill that might be a bobcat. It was confirmed, a 15-20 lb. female. It was found along a road near the junction of county highways 5 and 10.
That would put it very near Highwater Creek. The fact it was found there is interesting and, it came as no surprise to me that if bobcats were present in our county it would be there.
