Monarchs visit Osage County on trail to Mexico

Local photographer Kareen King said she hit the “lottery of Monarch butterflies” last week while east of Osage City along the Flint Hills Nature Trail. Here’s a sample of the beautiful sights she captured in photos, as the butterflies briefly rested in Osage County along their annual fall migration to Mexico. She posted more photos on the Kanza Rail-Trails Conservancy’s Facebook page, here.
