Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. Thomas Merton

I finally managed to get a photo of a monarch in the yard. This one was flitting around the milkweed and it took me several attempts to get a shot.


  1. Wonderful and I love that milkweed too!

  2. No Monarchs out here - they don't make it this far! Nice picture!

  3. They just don't want to sit still, do they?

  4. Monarchs are beautiful butterflies, and that one looks so pretty against the milkweed, so colorful. We kept seeing them yesterday since we were collecting leaves at a nature preserve, for my daughter's biology project. Fun stuff! Loved your post on the cats too. Smile today. :)

    On another note, what do you do when you suspect someone you know is harrassing you on your own blog? I'm pretty sure it's my ex-mother-in-law! Isn't that sad?

  5. nice shot! the monarchs are such beautiful butterflies...then again, what butterfly isn't??!!
    i don't get to see any monarchs in our THANKS! :)
