Last of the Monarchs...

It looks like they have all left for warmer climes---heard today that they are now being seen in abundance in Texas----

I visited the daisies today-- looked in on the metaphid---he was enjoying another meal--maybe another image--different view!

and Thank You so much---Marktc and ChristineD for your wonderful User Awards!

The sunlight through it's wings is fantastic.

What a magnificent looking butterfly Jennnn, you've caught some wonderful light through his wings. A monarch was sighted somewhere in Dorset earlier in the week and photographers travelled for miles around to see it and photograph it.
