University of Kansas professor of ecology and evolutionary biology Jorge Soberón, left, holds a small yellow butterfly he netted Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017 in the Baker Wetlands while two of his first-year doctoral students, Marlon Cobos and Claudia Nunez, look up the specimen in a field book. The three were at the Wetlands as part of the annual Monarch Watch tag and release day. Chip Taylor, director of the KU-based Monarch Watch, said monarchs were in short supply at the Wetlands for the event because the majority of the butterflies were just a bit north of Lawrence on the annual late summer and fall migration to Mexico.
