Another monarch rescue

Were they swept in on these fronts? Are they home-grown butterflies? For the second time within a week, we've ushered a butterfly back outdoors. Once back in the great outdoors, the first one hung around on a four o'clock plant for hours and hours, but finally was no more to be seen. The second one found its way immediately to an orane-and-yellow potted asclepias and offered lengthy attentions to the flowers. This one definitely appears to be a male, so I won't expect to find an dusting of eggs on those plants, at least not immediately, not from him.
