My Lucky Day - A Monarch Sighting
SmugMug Daily Link
I just cannot tell you how excited I was to spot 3 Monarch Butterflies at The Garden Hut today. One minute I was taking a few sunflower shots, and the next thing I new, Monarchs were fluttering on the tall, orange flowers nearby. Honestly, I'm not sure what these flowers are. They are over my head and resemble a Zinnia. Whatever they are, the Monarchs seemed to really like them. I took some shots and then the butterflies flew away. I walked around for a while browsing, and then as I was leaving, I took some more shots. As luck would have it, this crisp shot was the last one I took. It was quite windy, and the butterfly and flower kept being blown out of the frame as I was shooting. Well, I may not have taken very many butterfly shots this summer, but this shot makes up for it!
