I cannot believe no one has commented on this photo yet! It is spectacular. So nice to see a Monarch. After a few years of not seeing any I had a pair of them dancing on a butterfly bush late this summer.

Thanks Jennifer! We had lots of Monarchs last year (as well as other butterflies) which was so good to see but all butterflies were sporadic visitors to the garden this year and I think I only saw Monarchs three or four times.
