I seriously did a happy dance this morning because two Monarch butterflies danced around each other in front of my window. It was a delight to see as we don’t have many butterflies in our neck of the woods (not any flowers) 😦 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you 🙂 It is great you saw the Monarchs happy dance 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply You’re welcome.

Maybe brown is the new black. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply That’s right, they do fly close to the ground and are quite floppy fliers. And when they settle they tend to land amongst tall grasses so can be hard to photo. LikeLike Reply Your thoughts ... Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
