Sky High

I saw another Monarch today. It was in the very top of the tree. I kept hoping it would come down a little closer, but it never did. Maybe it was afraid I had my cat, Trouble, with me. :0)

Thank you so much for your comments and faves on yesterday's Clearwing moth!!! I didn't get to everyone's pics last night. I really didn't feel well. I'm going to try to catch up tonight. :0)

i love all your butterfly and bird photos! looks gorgeous where you are!

Oh so very pretty. Great job. I laughed because I thought it said, "I was in the very top of the tree" and I wondered how you got up there ; )

I love following you. So many beautiful butterflies to see and you seem to have them all just plop down in your yard. At least I get to see them this way.

Gorgeous coloured sky throws the blossom out so well. Our native butterflies are just beginning to appear, but haven't come near enough to my lens yet!
