monarch migration

Brazenly abstracted from here.

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.

This is so funny! I have just printed out Dolly Partons "Love is like a Butterfly" in the wedding card for the couple who get married tomorrow.

Joanne chose butterflies as the theme! LOL! Small world eh?

Thanks for the lovely comment.

Love is like a butterfly
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside
It flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing

I have never yet managed a decent butterfly photo.
