Where are all the Butterflies?

Fritillary butterfly

Where have all the butterflies gone this year?  It seems to me that the numbers have greatly declined.  I have only seen four Monarch's in the past few weeks.  Just four!  The above Fritillary is common near my house, but I have hardly seen any of those either.  I am wondering if the drought of the past two years has played into the lack of butterflies.  I am curious to see which species will boom next...hope the weather is butterfly friendly next year.

Being Whimsical! :)

After years of searching, I finally am able to post a fun idea that captured my whimsical, creative spirit!  

Is it too vain for me to have prints of these made and hang them in my house?
