It's a little early, but I think the annual monarch migration may be starting. At least I've seen what seems like more than the usual number of these orange and black beauties around lately. Since the weather has modulated so much, cooler and drier than it was even last week, the weather forecasters are calling for an earlier autumn, so maybe the monarchs got the word. Anyway, it's a beautiful sight. I've seen several butterflies "playing" in the lawn sprinkler! That's quite something.
