Where have all the butterflies gone?

No butterflies, zero, zip, zilch. Not one caterpillar on the abundant milkweed or anything else.  I know the milkweed was not poisoned by the nicotinamides because I grew them myself from last year's seeds.  And it isn't just Monarchs that are missing, there are no swallowtails or even yellow sulfurs. It is like a silent spring of butterflies. 



It's odd isn't it. Makes one wonder what's going on....I've noticed quite a few birds that normally frequent our area are missing in action also. Hmmmm
