Fluttering About The Yard

I had lunch outside in the back yard yesterday, and while I was out there I was treated to not only watching Hendrix and Dylan playing kitten games, but also the presence of at least three different types of butterflies happily fluttering about. That makes for a good day!

It looks like it will be a good autumn for butterflies, and that makes me smile, because in a few weeks we are going to see the Monarchs in Pacific Grove. I love visiting the preserve each year, who wouldn't love walking among thousands of butterflies with the Pacific ocean just a few short blocks away! Awww... paradise. I can't wait!

Wherever a butterfly flaps it's wings the effect will be felt all over the world.

Who doesn't love the beauty of a butterfly? Nice shots and I wish I was near you to see the monarchs when they come through.
