We had our first overnight frost last week, and I swear,
the butterfly feeding frenzy was a premonition on their part.
When one knows The End is near, why be bashful or unsociable?
Tattered and torn, but untroubled, was this elder Monarch nearby.
For the love of Marigolds and warm Autumn afternoons, a Painted Lady lays out.
This dainty lady with a gray hairstreak was fearless before the first frost.
Hearty Marigolds play host to the fanciest creatures on earth.
A butterfly menagerie is a feast for eyes to see.
The last to come was the first to go, before the freeze set sail.
“Stay warm, be cool, and feel free, folks!”
Beautiful butterflies…. they get along so well with those orange flowers!… Have a great week ahead, dear UT ❤ 🙂
Thank you, vw! 🙂
Thank you kindly, Amalia! 🙂
They do seem to have something to teach us, methinks.
You have a great week, too! 🙂 Cheerz, UT
Thank you, kind sir! 🙂
Beautiful, richly hued photos.
Thank you truly, D! 🙂
I truly enjoyed all your beautiful photos. Had our first frost here too a few days ago. Nature knows….! Thank you. 🙂
Thank you, Betty! 🙂 Glad you liked them!
A few butterflies did return, or, perhaps,
they experienced a rebirth. Hard tellin’. 😉
Butterflies and flowers….glorious splashes of bright colors before the arrival of the cold grey winter.
I like the way you see things, Mary! 🙂
Thank you for brightening my day! Peace and luvz, UT
