So pretty! We didn't see butterflies all summer. A couple hung around here this fall but I didn't get very good shots.
Have a nice weekend.

What a beautiful photograph. I usually hate it when people refer to their own blog in a comment, but I thought you might be interested to see my embroidered monarch on a milkweed. Your photo could have been my inspiration http://ginxcraft.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/more-phone-cosies.html

OMGosh! A Monarch! Been trying to spy some down here; but, have yet to see one. They are on a decline. This gives me hope!

EG CameraGirl said...

So lovely, Karen! Yesterday I saw at least three different monarchs down by Lake Ontario. I guess they are still migrating, which surprised me as I would have thought they'd have done that already.

Jannibele said...

Stunning! Such a beautiful photo! I love butterflies. They are not easy to catch in the right moment. You made it:)

Nice! We had some butterflies in the garden this weekend - but the wind seems to keep them on the move. Next time maybe.
